Joanna Bogle phoned today to tell me she has been commissioned by Gracewing to write a book about Mother Richard. I have invited her down to give a talk when she has sufficient material. She wanted to see her baptismal entry, so I have copied it here, it is easier than e-mailing it. It is the bottom one. I thought readers might be interested too, it is significant that for some reason her Solemn Profession has not been noted, maybe things were different before the 1915 Code of Canon Law, anyone know?
Some of you found some interesting things out about her, Joanna would be interested in anything anyone might know. Leave a note here, the same if through her intercession some miracle should occur.
Obviously until God grants some sign that will lead to her beatification by our Mother the Church we can't encourage cult but it would be good to encourage a loving admiration for her. I sent off an e-mail this morning to the Postulator of her Cause, Mgr Oscar Sanchez, asking for permission for us to publish a prayer card, all these things have to be checked and cleared, we can't we shouldn't even hint that someone is in Heaven, if they are not. I must check out the day of her death and get out the black vestments for a Requiem.
