CANONISATION OF BLESSED MARY OF THE CROSS MACKILLOP ANNOUNCED

The Holy See has announced that the Public Consistory for the Canonisation of Blessed Mary of the Cross(Mary Helen) MacKillop, virgin, Foundress of the Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Joseph of the Sacred Heart along with 5 other Beati, will take place at 11.00 a.m. on Friday 19th February, 2010 in the Consistory Hall of the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican.

This is of course the first Canonisation of an Australian, and cause for great rejoicing and reflection and thanks to God here in "the Great South Land of the Holy Spirit"as the pre discovery "maps" used to call the land mass they hypothesised existed.

Saint Mary of the Cross, Pray for us.
