THE BODY OF Venerable Mary Potter, foundress of the Little Company of Mary, was reburied in St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham, on Wednesday after being flown in from Rome.
Cardinal Basil Hume, Bishop James McGuiness and Bishop Patrick Doughtery from Australia were among those who joined representatives from the 120 Little Company of Mary communities around the world.
Born in Bermondsey, London, in 1847, Mary Potter started a community of prayer and help for the dying in a derelict stocking factory in the Hyson Green area of Nottingham in 1877.
She died in Rome in 1913 and was buried in a public cemetery in Rome. Pope John Paul II took the first step towards her canonisation when he declared her "venerable" in 1988.
