MOVES are afoot to have a former Koroit district woman murdered in Papua New Guinea 47 years ago declared Australia’s second Catholic saint. Connie Gladman, known as Sister Rosina, was beheaded in her classroom in New Britain while working as a teaching nun among impoverished communities. Now her family has instigated an official request for canonisation as a martyr for her faith [The Warrnambool Standard]
It seems that Connie Gladman’s sisters have written to the Catholic bishop of New Britain to set the official wheels in motion.
My question is why should Sister Mary Rosina be an Australian saint, as she was murdered (martyred?) in PNG?
Anyway I thought you needed two proven miracles. Or maybe the family is merely angling for a 'Blessed'.
What next - St Michael of Somare?
Speaking as a backsliding Protestant, I'm rather amused.
