    Didn’t Mary MacKillop have a sister? Is that what they mean?

    In the absurd and semi-literate English translation of the liturgical books in use in the Ukrainian Catholic Church here in the States, there occurs the phrase at various points “always praying for your descendants O Mother of God,” which always makes me mutter “Anathema upon Helvidius and Jovinian” whenever I hear it.

      Ah, but if Mary is “Mother of the Church”, doesn’t that make all of us, in a theologically meaningful sense, her children? And, therefore, her descendants?

    Can Catholic Education Offices across Australia get anything right?
