Appeal regarding the cause for the beatification of venerable Mary Ward
Dear Members of the Family of Mary Ward,
As you are aware, we need a miracle to advance the Cause of Mary Ward to the next level, that of her Beatification. I am happy to let you know that we have a very promising case.
I need your help in two areas:
- Your earnest prayer during the coming weeks, that if God wills, this case may be brought to a successful conclusion
- If you are able, please send me a brief statement of what Mary Ward means to you or to others in your part of the world (a paragraph or two will suffice). Many of you are very diligent about sending regular updates about Mary Ward activities in your part of the world. I would appreciate at this time, some statements concerning the personal impact of our Venerable Founder on your life. This will help to provide more comprehensive evidence of devotion to Mary Ward worldwide. You may write in whatever language is most comfortable for you and email to the Cause address below.
Completing the Canonisation process can only happen with the concerted effort of the whole Mary Ward Family. Will you consider playing your part by responding to this request?
Yours very sincerely,
Elizabeth Cotter IBVM
