Mother Riccarda has a Brighton Bus

She may not quite be a saint yet, or have a memorial, but she does have a bus. I was crossing the road on Saturday and spotted this:-

Last year on 5 July, Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed Mother Riccarda, who was baptised at our parish, “venerable”  in a ceremony at the Vatican. She may not have been beatified yet but in Brighton, it is the greatest accolade to have your name emblazoned on one of the buses. People still alive are on single buses and the dead on double-deckers.  Mother Riccarda is number 411 just after the Prince Regent’s bather Martha Gunn.
