Saint of the Month

St. Marianne Cope
January Saint of the Month
St. Marianne Cope was born in Germany in 1838. A year later, her family moved to the Utica, New York. Marianne attended parish school until the eighth grade, then went to work in a factory to support her family. After her father died, she left the factory to join the Sisters of the Third Order Regular of Saint Francis. St. Marianne became a teacher and later a principal at a school for German-speaking immigrant children. She also helped direct the opening of the first two Catholic hospitals in central New York. After Marianne had become the Superior General of her congregation in 1883, she received a plea for help from leprosy sufferers in Hawaii. The king of Hawaii, King Kalakaua sent the letter asking for aid to treat patients who were isolated on the island of Moloka’i. Marianne felt the need to care for the lepers and left Syracuse with six sisters to care for the lepers in Hawaii. Once Marianne and the sisters arrived, they managed a hospital on the island of O’ahu, where victims of leprosy were sent. The most severe patients, however, were sent to Moloka’i. A year later, Mother Marianne helped establish a hospital on the island of Maui. She also became responsible for orphans of women who had gotten the disease and clergy who had contracted the disease while caring for lepers. Although Mother Marianne’s work became a burden and she was confined to a wheelchair, she continued to work tirelessly. St Marianne Cope never got leprosy despite her many years of working with lepers. She passed away in 1918. Several miracles were reported in her name and after her beatification, Marianne’s remains were moved to Syracuse, New York and placed in a shrine. She was canonized a saint in 2012 and her feast day is January 23. St. Marianne Cope is the patron saint of lepers, outcasts, those with HIV/AIDS, and Hawaii.
 
“The charity of the good knows no creed and is confined to no one place."

“May God give you health and strength so you will be able to lead the little ones to Him and teach them to love God more than any thing in this world."
