About St. Marianne Cope of Molokaʻi

Saint Marianne Cope, O.S.F., also known as the Saint Marianne of Molokaʻi, (23 January 1838 - 9 August 1918) is a Roman Catholic Saint, and was a member of the Sisters of Saint Francis of Syracuse, New York. Known for her charitable works and virtuous deeds, she spent many years caring for the lepers on the island of Molokaʻi, Hawaiʻi. Despite direct contact with the patients over many years, Cope was not afflicted by the disease, considered by some faithful to be miraculous. In 2005, she was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI. Cope, along with six others, were canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on October 21, 2012. As of 2012, Saint Marianne Cope is only the 11th American saint of the Roman Catholic church.
