Mother Aikenhead Declared Venerable

Great news today, a new Irish Venerable. Mary Aikenhead, foundress of the Irish Sisters of Charity has been declared Venerable by Pope Francis. She was asked by Archbishop Daniel Murray to found a congregation inspired by St Vincent de Paul.  These sisters were dedicated to the care of the poor and the sick. 

She joins a whole host of Irish Venerables, let's hope she doesn't stay there for too long: we need a miracle to see her beatified. We need to clear these Venerables and get them beatified!
