Vatican congregation paves way for US nun’s canonization

Catholic World News - December 12, 2011

The Congregation for the Causes of the Saints has confirmed a medical board’s decision that a healing attributed to Blessed Marianne Cope was miraculous in nature--thus paving the way for her canonization.

Born in Germany, Blessed Marianne Cope emigrated to the United States as an infant, entered religious life in New York, and ministered to lepers on the island of Moloka’i until her death in 1918. She was beatified in 2005.
