Fantastic Reading

By: 'Catholic Life' - 7th of May 2019

This book would make fantastic reading for anyone wanting to know more about St Mary of the Cross.

The author, who wrote the book for private publication in 1989, was postulator for the cause of her canonisation. A copy of his work was presented to the Vatican's Congregation for the Causes of Saints, along with a two volume official biography of her life.

Now for the first time, we too can read this analysis of Mary MacKillop's life against the theological virtues - faith, hope and charity - and the cardinal virtues - prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude.

The book begins with an explanation that many of the sisters who worked with Mary MacKillop held her in such high esteem because of the virtues she displayed, rather than the work she did.

There is a comprehensive history of the saint at the beginning of the book and then her virtues are presented with ample quotes from those who knew her.

Fr Gardiner shows that Mary MacKillop not only gave lip-service to the virtues but lived them when she was challenged by the pressures of life which would have revealed is she was counterfeit or superficial.

Mother Mary lived the virtues in a rock-solid way throughout the many storms that beset her personally as well as the institute she founded.
