Miracle needed for Mary's sainthood


Vatican bureaucracy, recalcitrant doctors, red tape and "the lack of a culture of miracles in Australia" are all combining to delay the canonisation of Bl Mary MacKillop, says Jesuit priest Fr Paul Gardiner, the postulator for Mary MacKillop's cause. By contrast, the active support of Pope John Paul II has fast-tracked the sainthood of Mother Teresa - largely because she is an international figure.
