Venerable Fulton Sheen on the Unforgivable Sin

Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Sin is not the worst thing in the world. The worst thing in the world is the denial of sin....  If I deny that there is any such thing as sin, how shall I ever be forgiven? The denial of sin is the unforgivable sin, for it makes redemption impossible.
— Venerable Fulton Sheen

Prayer for the Canonization of Venerable Fulton Sheen

Heavenly Father, source of all holiness, You raise up within the Church in every age men and women who serve with heroic virtue and love. You have blessed Your Church through the life and ministry of Your servant, Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen. He has written and spoken well of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and was truly an instrument of the Holy Spirit in touching the hearts of countless people. 

If it be according to Your Will, for the honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity and for the salvation of souls, we ask You to move the Church to proclaim him a saint. We ask this through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
