Miracle in Gower: Hundreds Flock to View Remarkably Well-Preserved Body of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster

Hundreds of people flocked to Gower, Missouri this week to witness the exhumed body of Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster, a 95-year-old Black nun who has barely decomposed since her death in 2019. Surprisingly, her body had been buried in a simple wooden coffin without any embalming four years ago, yet had barely decomposed. The discovery drew hundreds of people from around the country to Gower, many of whom waited in line for hours to view the body. Sister Wilhelmina's body is set to be placed in a glass shrine in the church on Monday, and the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles have expressed their gratitude for the support and admiration of Sister Wilhelmina.
