CANONISATION OF MARY OF THE CROSS MACKILLOP ANNOUNCED



Technical problems with Google indexing have made it desirable to re-post all of our material. I hope you will find interest in reflecting with me, on the history of the Church over the centuries and during the life of the Blog which began on 14th December 2009. This post first appeared on 12th February 2010.




BLESSED MARY OF THE CROSS MACKILLOP
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.
