Sr. Mary Lelia Mangan
Hagan, John, 1873-1930
Holograph letter from Sr.(Mary) Lelia Mangan, St. Vincent's, Convent of Our Lady of Mercy, Galway, to Hagan. Asking him to give the enclosed holograph letter from her to the Pope; understanding that he will not accede to her wish for the novena and fasts, but asking him to permit her to send following items to Armagh: enclosing holograph letter from her to Archbishop MacRory, together with a 'humble suggestion to help Ireland', and a newspaper account of poverty in Dublin (latter not extant),. At some length, explaining her past efforts to MacRory in contacting the Pope and Bishop O'Doherty about her wish for prayers and fasts, in devotion to St. Teresa of Lisieux, to help Ireland. Setting down her plan in great detail for novena, gifts of penance and black fasts; suggesting that in aid to Irish manufacturers the black cloth should be Irish. Pointing to the lack of hat factories in Ireland, however, for the movement to be efficient. Some people think women should cover their heads before the Blessed Sacrament; children certainly arrive with head uncovered, on school days at least.
