Two British nuns were yesterday placed on the long road to sainthood at a ceremony in Rome.Sister Katherine Flanagan and Mother Riccarda Beauchamp Hambrough were declared ‘Servants of God’. The ceremony marks the first step of the process of becoming a saint. The London-born women both belonged to a revived order of Bridgettine sisters nicknamed ‘the hot cross bun nuns’ because of the distinctive crosses covering the tops of their wimples. Mother Riccarda helped to save the lives of about 60 Jews by hiding them from the Nazis in her Rome convent, the Casa di Santa Brigida.
