— A bid to have a former Indian residential school student from northern British Columbia declared a saint was raised directly with Pope Benedict XVI this week during a private discussion at the Vatican.

Grand Chief Ed John said he told the pontiff about Rose Prince, a woman who died in 1949 after spending most of her life at Lejac Native Residential School, first as a student and later as an employee.

When the school was shut down two years after her death, a construction project accidentally unearthed her grave and opened her casket, where witnesses said her body was surprisingly intact.
