Not just any saint; this was the day that Australia's first saint, Mary MacKillop, was finally recognised as a universal saint for her heroic goodness, her holiness and her capacity to achieve great things in the face of adversity. Read about the celebrations in Adelaide, Penola and Rome including Southern Cross reporter Rebecca DiGirolamo's first-hand account of the Australian pilgrimage to the Vatican.
