Mary Makillop

Mary Helen MacKillop(15 January 1842 – 8 August 1909), also known as Saint Mary of the cross, was an Australian Roman Catholic nun who, together with Father Julian Woods, founded the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and a number of schools throughout Australasia with an emphasis on education for the poor, particularly in country areas. Since her death she has attracted much attention in Australia and internationally. MacKillop is the only Australian to have been canonised which means she is being turned into a saint.Some people don’t want here to be a saint or to be canonised and probably don’t believe in miracles or are a different religion.she has also made 2 miracles

#1 she cured a lady of lukemia in 1961 and

#2 she cured a man of lung cancer in the 1990’s these miricals where aprroved by the vatican

 She was canonised on 17 October 2010 during a public ceremony in St Peter’s Square at the Vatican making her the first Australian to be recognised by the Roman Catholic Church as a saint.MacKillop died on 8 August 1909The Archbishop of Sydney stated that: “I consider this day to have assisted at the deathbed of a Saint.After MacKillop’s burial, people continually took earth from around her grave. As a result, her remains were exhumed and transferred on 27 January 1914 to a vault

Gold price

Gold has hit the top at the moment.It is very hard  to pick up also is measured in ounces.The name is from the old English word yellow.it is very rare to find and considered precious.gold is valued for its shine.Before that, people would use things like stones or feathers to buy or swap items like food, clothing and shelter.gold has been tresured since the start of man{and woman}

amazing facts i found are:

The largest gold nugget ever found was the ‘Welcome Stranger’ found in 1869 just under the soil at the base of a tree! It weighed 70 kg and on today’s value would be worth over 1 million dollars. what a great find!

also the term ‘digger’, the nickname for Australian soldiers fighting overseas, comes from the fact that many of the World War I soldiers had literally been diggers in the goldfields just before the war. 

Although we don’t see people use gold as money any more, it’s still being traded.

So with gold becoming more valuable, we could see more people investing in the precious metal.%E8%B6%85%E5%A4%A7%E9%87%91%E7%A3%9A%28The+big+220+kilograms+gold+nugget+in+99.9%25+purity.+%29

b.t.n window shopping!

when buying pet shops that sell dogs and cats in glass cages,they look ok in them well some people think its animal cruelty and want to ban the glass cages but there is a pet shop owner who doesn’t put the animals in the front windows but puts them in the middle of the shop so people don’t scare them and he also takes them home after he closes the store.have you ever wondered what happens when the store closes well some people leave them there all night but get left with a professional animal handler.if you don’t want to bye a dog from a pet shop there is always animal shelters where you can adopt homeless cats and dogs.Play
