Confidence in God…enables us never to be discouraged in spite of the worst opposition

Mary MacKillop, like Suzanne Aubert, was gifted with a heart that embraced everyone. Both women co-operated with God’s action in creating a world where the poor could flourish and live wholesome lives. The lives of these two holy women were full of the power of God’s love. They witnessed to God’s life that is lavished upon us and they showed us how we are meant to live. Suzanne Aubert wrote: “Confidence in God…enables us never to be discouraged in spite of the worst opposition, under the blows of the most unexpected and worst eventualities.” (Directory 5, page 183)
