It is just over 12 years since Pope John Paul II declared Mary to be “Blessed”.
This proclamation was made on 19 January, 1995 , during a Papal Visit to Australia.
In addition to the links provided on the Novena Page of our site, further interesting notes about Mary are to be found on the website of the ABC’s COMPASS program. Father Paul Gardiner, the Postulator for Mary’s “case” for Sainthood was on the panel of people being interviewed for the program.
The Catholic Australia website has an ‘in-depth’ profile of Mary MacKillop – her life and spirituality.
