Compass - Mary, Miracles and Saints
Mary MacKillop, the Melbourne-born daughter of Scottish migrants, was undoubtedly a remarkable woman: she co-founded the Sisters of St Joseph, sailed to Rome to secure Papal endorsement of her Order and devoted her life to educating and helping the poor. But she was also excommunicated from her church, thrown out of three dioceses and accused of being an alcoholic. So, how can this 19th Century nun be now recognised as a Saint? One hundred years after her death Compass examines the life and times of Mary MacKillop: her road to sainthood (a process begun in 1925), her two 'miracles' and for the first time, the true story behind her excommunication.
