On September 16, 2010 my son, James Fulton, was delivered at home, a stillborn. CPR was administered, 911 was called, James was transported to a hospital, and after 61 minutes of being without a pulse – just as the doctors were prepared to call time of death – my son came back to life. The doctors believed there would be massive organ damage from the lack of oxygen which meant James would die very soon. When he didn’t die they believed he would be a “vegetable” and when it was clear that he wouldn’t be dependent on machines they warned us that he would be severely disabled.
From the very beginning and throughout it all my husband, family, friends, and I asked for a miraculous full restoration through the intercession of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, for whom we had named our son. Over the months it became increasingly clear to us that God had answered our prayers and those of Fulton Sheen. Believing that God had worked a miracle on our son we contacted the Sheen Foundation who then opened an investigative tribunal into the alleged miracle.
It has been eight years since James was born. Today he is in second grade – a normal little boy who loves french fries, Star Wars, fishing, and riding his bike.
On July 5, 2019 Pope Francis approved James’ miracle for Fulton Sheen’s beatification. Glory to God!
