.- Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata has formally closed the diocesan inquiry into a possible miracle attributed to the Blessed Maria Ludovica de Angelis that could lead to her canonization.

After invoking the protection of Our Lady of Carmel, Archbishop Aguer sealed the files and sent them to the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints in Rome to be studied and examined.

In a statement the archdiocese said that the miracle was related to the case of a young child. “This event brings much joy.  Not long after her beatification we have another extraordinary act.  The strength of Ludovica is important because she is a protector of children,” Archbishop Aguer said.

He explained that the inquiry into the “miraculous cure” was completed thanks to the “testimonies of the child’s family and seven medical reports that prove that the cure cannot be scientifically explained.”

The first miracle attributed to Blessed Maria was that of Antonella Cristelli, a young girl suffering from spinal bifida, which affected her urinary tract, bladder and kidneys and left her unable to move her arms and legs.  She was inexplicably cured after praying to Blessed Maria. 

John Paul II beatified the Argentinean nun in October of 2004.
