Mother Mary Lange’s is shifted from New Cathedral Cemetery in Baltimore to Our Lady of Mount Providence Convent Chapel.
Archbishop Lori presided over the two-hour canonical celebration encompassing the transfer and blessing of Mother Lange’s remains, which included her skull and several bones exhumed May 28 2013.
The faithful venerated the relics before they were sealed in a reliquary and sarcophagus in the chapel’s oratory. The sarcophagus cannot be reopened without Vatican permission.

“You can’t explain it,” said Oblate Sister of Providence Celestina Johnson, 86, searching for words to describe her feelings. She had just participated in a June 3 canonical celebration where the remains of her congregation’s foundress were transferred to a permanent home in its mother house’s chapel.
“You never thought a day you’d live to see this,” said Sister Celestina, an Oblate for 56 years. “To look upon the remains of her is astounding.”
The transfer of Mother Mary Lange’s remains from New Cathedral Cemetery in Baltimore to Our Lady of Mount Providence Convent Chapel was prompted by her cause for canonization as a saint in the Catholic Church. Archbishop William E. Lori petitioned the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints in April for her remains to be transferred, and the Congregation assented to his request May 3.
It is a tradition for the Catholic Church to make the relics of a person with a cause for canonization more accessible to the public for increased devotion and pilgrimage.
With approval from Rome, Cardinal William H. Keeler, then archbishop of Baltimore, officially opened a formal investigation of Mother Lange’s life in 1991. In 2004, documents describing Mother Lange’s life were sent to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine for the Causes of Saints, and the Congregation approved the cause for her sainthood.
Mother Lange, along with Sulpician Father Nicholas Joubert, established the Oblate Sisters of Providence in Baltimore in 1829. A refugee from Santiago, Cuba, possibly of Haitian heritage, Mother Lange started the nation’s first Catholic school for African American refugee children a year before founding the Oblates, the first religious order for African American women.

The Bible explains that the wicked will go from bad to worse, as we exit from the age of grace. The Roman Catholic priesthood do no longer worship Satan in the dark corners of crypts. Their obedience to Lucifer takes place in brought daylight, inside Vatican approved shrines.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness.
The spiritual tragedy unfolding is massive. Hundreds of millions of people mock Jesus the Messiah in the name of “Christ”. The word of God is set aside by the Papacy and his bishops. Monks and nuns in the city of Baltimore sing hymns as the archbishop leads them into blasphemy and lawlessness.
Think twice if you feel you can be a supporter of this religious movement, and still escape judgment and the fire of Hell. You are deadly wrong. Repent, and renounce the evils of the Roman Catholic religion. Next: Ask Jesus the Messiah to forgive you and save your soul.
I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.
If you are truly willing to leave this false Church behind, you will be found in the Kingdom of Heaven. The Messiah loves people who obey Him and asks for mercy. Amen.
