Many wonderful saints share the month of August for their feast days, but it is hard as an Australian to pass up the opportunity to celebrate St Mary of the Cross MacKillop. Sr Monica Cavanagh RSJ, the congregational leader of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, has said that by all accounts the foundress of the order was “purely human”, warm, and faithful.
“Mary really believed that every encounter was an opportunity to see the face of God.”

St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, pray for us!
