The Australian media is in a 'bite its own leg off' frenzy over the impending canonisation of Sister Mary MacKillop.
It is happening as I type. The canonisation, not the self-legectomy.
As an atheist and the son of a man who carried the mental (and physical) scars of mistreatment by Catholic nuns for all of his life, it can't be over soon enough.
At least he wasn't in the care of Catholic priests.
