Australia's Christmas Present: Saint Mary MacKillop? PDF Print E-mail

Rumors are flying that an announcement approving the second miracle needed to canonize Blessed Mary MacKillop will be made before Christmas and that she will be canonized early in 2010.

The bishop who briefly deposed and excommunicated Mary MacKillop seems to have suffered from a brain tumor and repented of his action on his deathbed but excommunication was only the best known of the trials Mary experienced during her lifetime as she worked tirelessly to establish a Catholic educational system for the poor across the Australian continent.

We often speak of Mary MacKillop in our Called & Gifted workshops as a wonderful example of the charism of teaching - and of the fact that her bishop would have done well to have emulated the Archbishops of New York who, a century later, were irritated by Dorothy Day's politics. They didn't halt her Catholic Worker movement in case she turned out to be a saint.



As Cardinal Pell puts it in his homily in the Australian Broadcasting Company video above: Mary was always faithful to the bishops even when they treated her disgracefully.
