Work Wanted by An Extraordinary Woman

If you have any special prayer intentions, or need a miracle worked, ask for the intercession of Mother Magdalen Taylor (1832-1900), who is now up for beatification. Saints in the making welcome jobs to do.

Heavenly Father, you chose Mother Magdalen Taylor to found the Poor Servants of the Mother of God to serve the poor and needy. While on earth she never failed to respond to those in distress, so confident of her intercession I pray you to grant me this favour ......... which I ask in the name of Jesus, your Son. Amen.

Our Father. Hail Mary. Glory Be.

If you receive the favour, please communicate this in writing to Sr. B. McCarthy SMG, St. Gabriel's Convent, 7 Pembridge Square, London W2 4ED - to help the cause for beatification.

Elena Maria Vidal has some info on Mother Magdalen's historical novel Tyborne, about the English martyrs and Catholic life under penal laws, while Ruth Gilpin Wells' biography, A Woman of Her Time and Ours: Mary Magdalen Taylor SMG, is available by mail order from Andmeister Books London.
