Pope Benedict has named today numerous people “Servants of God” for their lives of heroic virtue. Included in the list were two Americans:
Bishop Baraga is a well-know missionary to the upper Great Lakes region, especially in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This is no doubt a great day for the diocese of Marquette!
I know nothing of Sr. Miriam, but I intend to do a little research and post some more on her later.
Congratulations, Diocese of Marquette and the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth!
