This makes no sense, unlike reporting exactly why the Vatican postponed Sheen's Beatification?
Was it from the USCCB---and if so, for what reason?
Every article I've read has said that the rationale for the intervention is unknown.
In that light, it would seem that the above-quoted statement is meant to be consolatory (i.e. informing the faithful that there are no known allegations) rather than precautionary (i.e. informing the faithful that their bishops are doing due-diligence).
While I doubt that it's the real reason behind the postponement, there is an allegation that Archbishop Sheen took no action regarding a complaint of abuse lodged against one of his subordinate priests and I believe that to be the reason behind the USCCB statement.
