On 05 July 1920, Mother Ignatius of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, brought a blood stained handkerchief, which belonged to Mother Cabrini, to John Henry Tasset in hopes of a miraculous intervention.  The handkerchief was gifted to the family.

A letter was written by Mary Catherine Schuck on 05 September 1920 describing her observations on the miracle of her husband John Henry Tasset.  This miracle, and one other family miracle, led to the canonization of Mother Cabrini as a Catholic saint.  A copy of the letter can been read by  "Clicking Here."
