Nano Nagle Cause
Nano’s Cause for canonisation was officially initiated at the bi-centenary of her death in 1984. In 2004 the Central Leadership Team set up a Nano Nagle Commission, to help in promoting Nano as a woman of faith and courage, in the hope that she may soon be declared Venerable. The Commission comprises three Presentation Sisters, one from each Irish Province. The Commission has worked to make Nano better known and to promote the cause of her canonisation.
They have recently made available a set of three DVDs on the life of Nano:
The Life of Nano Nagle, Foundress of the Presentation Sisters;
Boundless Love, Life and Spirituality of Nano Nagle
Not Words, but Deeds, Nano Nagle 1718 – 1784
These are available from The Nano Nagle Commission Office, Presentation Convent, Portarlington, Co. Laois, at a cost of €7 each OR €18 per set.
To forward the Cause of Nano, it is imperative that people cultivate devotion to her, and pray to her for favours. Any favours received, no matter how small, need to be reported to the Commission. Click here to make a report. Click here to find out about miracles already recorded.
O God, You filled the heart of Nano Nagle with loving care and compassion for the needy. Through her intercession, help us in our need… Grant that, like her, we may do Your Will, and that we may grow in Your Love and in the love of neighbour. Through Christ our Lord.
O God, Who enkindled in Nano Nagle, the fire of Your love and a consuming desire to serve You in any part of the world, grant that we also may love You, and make You much loved. And if it be for the salvation of souls, grant that soon she may be raised to the altars of Your Church. Through Christ our Lord.
