St. Mary of the Cross 1842-1909

Spiritual nourishment from her letters:

I cannot tell you what a beautiful thing the will of God seems to me.
For the will of God is a dear book which I never tire of reading,
which has always some new charm for me.

Yet my littleness and nothingness has often dared to oppose it.
But the words that you spoke to me come to my aid
and encourage me.

For the love of my sweet Jesus
is too strong, too beautiful, and his love too great
for me not to cling to him.

    This is a true story.

    While reading a book in my backyard on Mary McKillop in 1994, during a time of great suffering, a life saving miracle happened. Like St Mary McKillop said “The words that you spoke to me come to my aid and encourage me”.

    I heard a voice so clear. “Daryl, haven’t i always looked after you. And i always will”.
    The voice was so clear that i even looked over the back fence thinking that someone was having a go at me.

    NO, it was a locution, the voice was so beautiful and loving.

    I believe that St Mary McKillop was interceding for me. Our Saint wants to do the same for all of us.

    Science and Technology can not help us. The real Final Solution is to simplify our lives and humbly return to our God. Sophisticated arguments do not compare with the prayer of a child.
