The Venerable

There is an oddity that I much enjoy.

Its the use of the term "The Venerable" as in "The Venerable Bede".

We often will hear people within Holy Mother Church reference JPII as John Paul the Great, for better or worse.  I do wish the use of the former term would be applied to one person in general, that is Fulton Sheen who was declared Venerable last year.  Say it with me now....

+ The Venerable Sheen +
