Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Archbishop Fulton Sheen has been declared “venerable,” and may now be beatified if a miracle is attributed to his intercession. From CatholicCulture.org

I am so happy to hear this. Archbishop Fulton Sheen was a regular in my grandparents home. Back in the day, he was a regular in most everyone’s homes. Last year, I wrote a post about an experience I had in Adoration titled Lovely Lady Dressed In Blue . At the time I knew it was something, now I understand exactly what that something is. Its our Lord reaching out telling each of us, I am here.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen, pray for us. Pray for us to listen to Him and do everything according to the will of God. Pray for us to pull our Catholic family together, to pray together, to work together and to accomplish all our Lord is asking of us. Lovely Lady dressed in blue, Mama Mary, you inspired Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen in the simplest of ways through the heart of a child to answer the call. Call us all to seek the innocence and humility that brings us closer to your Son, our Lord. Amen

Lovely Lady Dressed In Blue

A few weeks ago, I purchased this prayer card. I thought it was beautiful as I was reading it. It brought me back to the innocence of childhood. Last night, or should I say early this morning while in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, in front of our Lord, he told me Archbishop Fulton Sheen used to pray it. I looked it up this morning when I got home.

Mary Dixon Thayer who wrote more than one poem for Our Lady, is the author.
This prayer-poem was popularized in the 1950s by Archbishop Fulton Sheen.

Here is the link and below, the prayer below

Lovely Lady Dressed in Blue

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
Tell me what to say!

Did you lift Him up, sometimes,
Gently on your knee?
Did you sing to Him the way
Mother does to me?

Did you hold His hand at night?
Did you ever try
Telling stories of the world?
O! And did He cry?

Do you really think He cares
If I tell Him things ——-
Little things that happen? And
Do the Angels’ wings

Make a noise? And can He hear
Me if I speak low?
Does He understand me now?
Tell me ——-for you know.

Lovely Lady dressed in blue ——-
Teach me how to pray!
God was just your little boy,
And you know the way.
