On Tuesday we celebrated an Australian woman, called to be an example for us all. Mary Mackillop was a woman of great faith, who promoted the dignity of each people; she worked tirelessly to help others. She provided comfort, compassion, education and love in an Australian context. Her steadfast commitment to her faith and the service of others is a true inspiration as our first Australian Saint.
Ever generous God,
You inspired Saint Mary MacKillop
To live her life faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and constant in bringing hope and encouragement to those who were disheartened, lonely or needy.
With confidence in your generous providence and through the intercession of Saint Mary MacKillop.
We ask that our faith and hope be fired afresh by the Holy Spirit so that we too, like Mary MacKillop, may live with courage, trust and openness.
Ever generous God hear our prayer.
We ask this through Jesus Christ.
A PROUD TRADITION OF CARE AND ACHIEVEMENT
