Mother Marianne Cope is elevated to sainthood after the Vatican authenticates a second miracle that was a result of her intercession the use of her bone fragments to cure a woman with acute pancreatitis.
The second Vatican-authenticated miracle leading to the sainthood of Mother Marianne Cope involves the healing of a New York woman who had an infection destroying her organs, fellow nuns have revealed for the first time.
Details on the purported miracle were revealed last week by the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities in Syracuse, N.Y. A bag of soil containing Marianne's bone fragments from the Hawaii peninsula where leprosy patients were exiled was pinned to Sharon Smith's hospital gown, Sister Burkard said.
Marianne cared for leprosy patients at the Kalaupapa settlement on the island of Molokai in the 1880s. She died in 1918 of natural causes and was buried there. The pope proclaimed her a saint last week after the Vatican authenticated two miracles that were a result of her intercession. The first miracle involved the unexplained cure of a New York girl who at 14 was diagnosed in 1992 with germ cell ovarian cancer.

Thanks God for another miracle.
I hope that everyone will love God for all his goodness and follow Jesus.
