Waltzing Mackillop

Oi Oi Oi! Oz has its first official saint.

Sr. Mary Mackillop will be canonized October 17.  She co-founded the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart in 1866, dedicating her life to educating poor kids. She was once excommunicated for a time (hope for us all!)...but her bishop later regretted it and took it back.

Update: Canada getting a new saint, too: Andre Bessette. Stephen Harper appears pleased.
