Prayers to find a good spouse
A lady in the USA asked for a petition to be placed at the shrine of Blessed Mary MacKillop in Australia. One at the petitions was for her 28 year old daughter Lyn to find a good husband. A few days after the petition was placed at Blessed Mary Mackillop’s tomb, Lyn’s mother received a telephone call from a man that Lyn had dated eight years ago. Lyn and her former boyfriend went on a pilgrimage to Lourdes, in France to pray there to discern God’s will for their lives. They have since married. Another of the mother’s petitions to Blessed Mary MacKillop was also answered. Her son decided to give up living with his girlfriend. They started to attend Mass regularly and also began making preparations to marry.
Blessed Mary MacKillop “fixes” a microwave oven
I had arranged to go on a pilgrimage to the shrine of Blessed Mary MacKillop at North Sydney. On the morning that I was due to go I discovered that my microwave oven had stopped working. When I went to the shrine I prayed for many important petitions. I also mentioned to Blessed Mary, the little matter of my microwave oven. When I arrived home I tried my microwave oven again. It was still not working. After this I slammed the oven door very hard and the microwave started working! It seems that the only thing that was wrong was that there was a fault in the closing mechanism of the door. The microwave oven was not fully closing. It only appeared to be fully closed.

I’m requesting a novena prayer to blessed Mary MacKillop. I desperately need one. Mom has stage 3-4-breast cancer. Thank you.

Dear Sherri, I do not have a specific novena to Blessed Mary MacKillop. You can easily formulate one to her, or to any saint. Say for nine days in a row, ten Hail Marys in honour of Blessed Mary MacKillop and then each day conclude the novena with the words: Blessed Mary MacKillop pray for us and please grant my petition (then state your petition.)
(Blessed Mary MacKillop will be canonised on October 17, 2010 then she will be St Mary MacKillop. I prayed at her tomb last Tuesday. Her formal title will be St Mary of the Cross)

Thank you Dave. I watched her canonisation on TV. It is a very exciting time for us Australians. I have just updated this thread.
