image for Wizard of Oz, Magic Pope creates Australia's first saint!
Mary MacKillop. Second to nun.

Pope Benedict XVI has canonised Australia's first native-born saint, Mary MacKillop, to the cheers of up to a million faithful and another million undecided, but who like a good spectacle all the same.

They gathered at St Peter's Basilica, overlooked by a giant wooden cross, an exact replica of the original one that is believed to have killed Jesus during an unfortunate carpentry mishap.

Cheers broke out in the crowd when Mary MacKillop's name was announced. The 19th century nun was said to have been briefly excommunicated because her order exposed a paedophile priest, ironically.

She also supported Aboriginal people because she believed in supporting those who were disadvantaged. The aboriginal people had no idea that they were disadvantaged, until the saintly nun showed up to enlighten them to the error of their ways and show that they had been living incorrectly for the past 40,000 years, before she arrived in the nick of time.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
