Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop

Look at the crowd at the canonization of Mary MacKillop religious service, this religious service and other major religious services always bring thousands of people to St Peter Square in Rome. Can anyone of us just imagine what this crowd of religious believers feel at this service.

Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop

This is a real modern religious story that is happening today as we speak, we are following this story, because we are interested in religions and religious events, so here are some links with similar religious interest that we follow or write:
Anyhow let us follow this modern story;
Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop
Celebrating Canonisation in Rome
Just for the record, this is a very special post for a very special person that has now become a Saint
In order to cover this special event I am posting this special post, even though you might find it disrupt my usual posting of my religious writings of Prayers of Reconciliation. Anyhow whatever you believe in and even if you are an atheist, religions are here to stay for a long time, just look at the grandeur of this religious service in Rome for Sainthood and you will understand why.
Hereunder are some links I hope they work to see what I mean.

Mary MacKillop Prayer | Saint Mary MacKillop

Mary MacKillop
A new documentary about the life of Mary MacKillop claims she was excommunicated from the Catholic Church partly as revenge for helping to expose a South Australian pedophile priest.
The documentary for the ABC's Compass program claims sisters in MacKillop's Josephite order of nuns attracted the ire of a South Australian priest for telling authorities that a Father Keating, of Kapunda, was molesting children at the local church school.
The sisters reported the abuse to the vicar-general and disciplinary action was taken against Keating, humiliating him and angering a Father Charles Horan, who was close to the bishop of Adelaide, Bishop Shiel, Fairfax newspapers say.
Horan is believed to have harboured a grudge against MacKillop and the whistleblowers in her order, and used his influence over the bishop to manipulate him into throwing the nun out of the church in 1871. Bishop Shiel reversed the excommunication on his deathbed.
Father Paul Gardiner, a Jesuit priest and the chief postulator for MacKillop's sainthood, told the documentary makers that Bishop Shiel was "gaga" when he excommunicated the woman soon to become Australia's first saint. "She submitted to a farcical ceremony where the bishop was, I'm not sure you should use this word, gaga, but he had lost it and he was being manipulated by malicious priests," he said.
Keating was sent back to Ireland where he continued as a priest, the documentary says.
This is the first time the link between a pedophilia cover-up and MacKillop's excommunication has been exposed, Fairfax says.
The documentary airs on October 10, a week before MacKillop's canonisation in Rome.
One Australian Saint

One Australian Saint that everybody will be talking for a long time is here.
Reported on the news
The canonisation of Mary MacKillop has been hailed as a day of rejoicing for all Australians, and a very special day for the Sisters of St Joseph.
In front of a crowd of about 50,000 Catholics from around the world, the Aussie bush girl Mary MacKillop became Saint Mary of the Cross.
Australians were estimated to make up between 6000 and 8000 of the crowd for the ceremony to canonise six saints, and they let out a huge cheer every time Mary's name was spoken.
Australian and Aboriginal flags were dotted throughout the crowd, and the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart - the order St Mary co-founded - stood out in their bright blue scarves, waving yellow Mary MacKillop balloons.
They were all there to see the canonisation of One Australian Saint.
Members of the official Australian delegation - including Cardinal George Pell, Sister Maria Casey, Sister Anne Derwin, Bishop Philip Wilson, Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop and Foreign Affairs Minister Kevin Rudd - addressed the media following the canonisation ceremony in St Peter's Square.
"This is a day of rejoicing and it's a day first of all for the Josephites - we rejoice for them, we rejoice with them," Cardinal Pell said.
"But it's also significant for the rest of us, as Australians and as Catholic Australians."
The Vatican estimated 50,000 people would be present in St Peter's Square for the occasion.
Cardinal Pell had his own way of summing up the impressive crowds.
"I thought the square was probably well and truly three-quarters full," he said.
"I thought it was a very respectable turnout. I was at the grand final of the AFL and it was a much bigger crowd than that."
Postulator Sister Maria Casey, who has worked hard for years to get Mary's sainthood recognised, said it had been a very emotional day for her.
"I felt very moved when the Holy Father actually spoke the words of the canonisation and I was able to look up at Mary looking down on us and out onto the square and I thought, `Mary, we've acknowledged you at last'," Sr Casey said.
"It was a very powerful day and a wonderful culmination for the many people who have worked on this cause since 1926. It's been a long journey.
"People say would I write my book but I say it could not be published yet."
Sr Casey said she had a discussion with the Pope, who remembered his visit to Australia for World Youth Day in 2008 with great fondness.
"He remembered very fondly his visit to Australia and being at Mary MacKillop's tomb," she said.
"He said it was a great day for Australia.
"He sends his greeting to all of Australia on this very happy occasion, and to the sisters also."
Mr Rudd said he felt humbled on hearing about the lives of the saints.
"As we listened to the life of Mary MacKillop and read the lives of those others who were canonised today, it gives you a genuine sense of smallness," he said.
"That is, that these are truly great people. It is a humbling experience."

Saintly name for new school centre
A Hunter Valley Catholic school has become one of the first to honour Saint Mary MacKillop with a trade training centre named in her honour.
Construction of the million dollar facility at St Joseph's High School, Aberdeen commenced this week after a dedication ceremony and blessing of the construction site.
The centre, majority funded by the federal government, will cater for courses in metals and engineering, construction, primary industries and information technology.
St Joseph's principal, John Tobin, says the new facility will become a hub for schools and the community.
"Its certainly going to be a building that will be open for the wider community and other schools," Mr Tobin said.
"We're hoping that with the spirit of MacKillop, rolling up one's sleeves and hard work and dedication, that the facility will enable students of the Upper Hunter and even adults to go through training that otherwise would not have occurred without the trade training centre."
Maitland-Newcastle Diocese director of schools, Ray Collins, believes Saint Mary would approve of the centre because it fits with the philosophy of the Sisters of St Joseph.
"It is to give the students of the Upper Hunter the opportunity to develop their skills, to prepare them for the types of work they might want to undertake in their future," Mr Collins said
"So in lots of ways we are continuing the role of Mary MacKillop in ensuring that our young people will make an impact in our society and make our world a better world."
The Saint Mary MacKillop trade training centre is scheduled to be ready for use early next year.
The other reasons
There are other reasons why we have written about this new saint religious service, it is because people believe that they need this sort of acknowledgment from the church; so this hub although it might seems that is talking mostly about Saint Mary MacKillop, it also wants to prove that we the people of this world need this sort of religious service that acknowledge the good deeds that someone has done during their lives.
Looking at the religious service and at the amount of people that were attending there and also around the world watching it on TV, one cannot help to wonder how we can continue to keep the religions going on indefinitely serving humanity, since humanity needs religions as we have seen from this religious event. Therefore we believe that we need to try to keep religious things going just the way that they are today, and then plan for the future the best way we can.
We believe that in the future, we need to link everything together, because people have always been interested in these sorts of religious happenings and they always will be, so the best thing for us to do is to try to find out how they can fit together in our new religious theory. You see the religious theory that we are talking about, it is going to be made up with everything that is known or believed to exist today, so every religion and every saint has got a place to fit into including, . Saint Mary MacKillop, as the new Saint that has a place among the other Saints, wherever that place would be according to God’s spiritual set-up
Next time we go back to write normal posts about our religious writings of, Reconciliation of the Universe, in the hub called; Future God of the Universe
May God bless us all?
See you soon
