Sanctus nobis.........

..... rather we have six new saints

  • Mary of the Cross MacKillop
  • Brother Andre - Canadian monk said to have been able to heal the sick
  • Stanislaw Soltys - 15th Century Polish priest
  • Giulia Salzano - 19th Century Italian nun who founded a convent near Naples
  • Camilla Battista da Varano - wealthy Italian who founded a convent in the 15th Century
  • Candida Maria de Jesus Cipitria y Barriola - Spanish founder of a 19th Century convent

But as Fr Paul Gardiner SJ the postulator for the cause of Mary MacKillop points out, canonisations are about holiness not miracles
