Today, another article about Blessed Mary MacKillop of Australia, this one on the splendid free on-line journal of the British Jesuits, Thinking Faith, and coming from the congregation that Mary founded, The Sisters of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart. And here too, no mention of Mary having been excommunicated in revenge for beinig involved in blowing the cover of a priest-sex-abuser. Could it be that American Catholics are more interested in sex abuse than our Australian consouers are? Or that they’re less into speculation? In any case, I was interested to learn that when she’s canonized next Sunday, Saint Mary MacKillop will be Australia’s first canonized saint. I picture St. Elizabeth Seton and St. Francis Xavier Cabrini up there celebrating with her.
