American bishop (later archbishop) celebrated for his preaching and work on television and radio. His cause for canonization was officially opened in 2002. In June 2012, Pope Benedict XVI recognized a decree from the Congregation for the Causes of Saints stating that he lived a life of “heroic virtues” – a major step towards beatification – so he is now referred to as “Venerable”.
