Canonisation of Mary Euphrasia , 2nd of May 1940

“When the Church speaks, I believe her just as if the Christ himself has spoken”

 

Pope Pius XII by his words bestowed on Mary of St. Euphrasia Pelletier the imperishable crown of sainthood. “This strong woman who in spite of great difficulties succeeded in founding marvelous works for the glory of God and the salvation of souls has the right and the merit to be inscribed among the heroes of the Christian Religion.”
