This book presents the Christian virtues of Mother Mary MacKillop, the Australian-born woman who has become Saint Mary of the Cross. 

It is not a biography, but rather a character portrait, tracing the outline of the virtues exemplified all through her life.Tested by pressures of life that would have shown up anything counterfeit or superficial, Mother Mary MacKillop lived the virtues in a way that can only be described as heroic. Prepared by the late Fr Paul Gardiner SJ, and printed privately in 1989, as part of her cause for canonisation, this text is now published for the first time.
