Miracle? Missouri Nun Buried 4 Years Ago Exhumed with No Decay
There is truly no explanation for this. A Missouri nun was buried in a simple wooden coffin 4 years ago. A few days ago, she was exhumed as her sisters were preparing to relocate her to a shrine inside the church. They were astonished to see that her body had seen almost no decay whatsoever.
Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster passed away May 29, 2019 at a monastery in Gower, Missouri. According to USA Today, she was buried without embalming in a simple wooden coffin. Her body was exhumed with the purpose of moving her to a shrine, but the church was shocked to see that she appeared to be what they called "incorruptible".
Pilgrims are now flocking to the monastery in Gower, Missouri to see what many consider to be a miracle.
What does it mean to be found "incorruptible"?
The Catholic News Agency describes it like this:
According to Catholic tradition, incorruptible saints give witness to the truth of the resurrection of the body and the life that is to come.
The USA Today report says that many within the church are now requesting sainthood for Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster. The Catholic News Agency mentions that an official investigation and confirmation has not yet been carried out by the church.
Officials are advising that anyone who plans to come to Gower, Missouri to see Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster should bring an umbrella and a chair to sit on as the lines are long already and expected to be even longer as the word of this Missouri "miracle" continues to spread.
