The case for elevating Suzanne Aubert, the founder of the Sisters of Compassion, to sainthood, is being backed by an Australian who helped push for that country’s first saint.
Sister Maria Casey, former postulator for Australia’s first saint, Mary MacKillop, is visiting to push along Sister Aubert’s claim for sainthood, a long and complicated process.
“So that there’s a real integrity and there is not room for future contradiction or for skullduggery, for want of a better word,” says Sister Casey.
Father Maurice Carmody has already presented the case to the Vatican.
“It’s then examined by a committee of three historians and three theologians and that’s the stage it’s at now,” he says.
But getting help from the Australian who was instrumental in getting that country’s first saint recognised, is being seen as a significant boost towards Suzanne Aubert’s claim.
