An English Catholic bishop has appealed for prayers to advance the cause of a religious sister who devoted her life to caring for the sick.
Preaching at a live-streamed Mass on Feb. 8, Bishop Patrick McKinney urged people to visit the tomb of Mother Mary Potter, founder of the Little Company of Mary, at St Barnabas Cathedral in Nottingham, a city in the East Midlands region.
"When the COVID situation improves, I would encourage people to pray at her tomb in the cathedral and to seek her prayerful intercession," the bishop of Nottingham said at the Mass in his private chapel.
"A miracle that could be attributed to Mother Mary's intercession would certainly speed up the Church's careful process of canonization."
