AUSTARC ~ 1997

What is a saint? How does a person become one? Will an Australian soon be officially recognised as a saint? These were some of the questions raised in 1995 when Pope John Paul II visited Australia for the ceremony to mark the beatification of Mary MacKillop. The celebration caught the imagination of many Australians, and it provided the stimulus for this paper on prayer and the saints, prepared by and for Roman Catholics and Anglicans.
