Let's check the forecast now:

Australian Catholics around the

world are this morning celebrating

our nation's first saint. Thousands

packed into Vatican City to watch

the Pope cannonise Mary Mackillop.

Let's go back there live and join

our Europe correspondent. We've had

the big event, and I guess we have

to wait, was it worth the 85-year

wait? Well, the thousands of people

reflecting and rejoicing here today

would certainly say so. They had a

front row seat to witness history

and an opportunity to thank and to

saint. honour a woman we can now call a

There's room for thousands, but not

much. Pilgrims packed St Peter's

Square to pray, to sing and to wait

for their saints. Soon enough, Pope

Benedict arrived in a procession of

48 co-celebrants, including

Australia's Cardinal George Pell.

The Church say it is is not the

Pontiff who makes a sane. He simply

recognises what God has already

done, but he was the one to say the

words, Mary's faithful have waited

85 years to hear. With that brief

passage of Latin, Australia had its

first Catholic saint. Kathleen

Evans, whose recovery from lung

cancer has been attributed to Mary

as the second miracle, brought to

the cross red gum from Penola and

strands of Mary's own hair. The

cannonisation over, a full mass

followed with the Pope praising the

newest six saints in turn. She did newest six saints in turn. She did

it herself as a young woman, the

education of the poor and in a

difficult and demanding time of

rural Australia. A century after

her life of championing the life of

those less fortunate, a great

Australian now holds the highest of

Cross. holy honours, our Saint Mary of the

Nourbgs let's go back to Dani live

at Vatican City. There's a

suggestion that Saint Mary could be

put forward as a patron Saint. This

follows a recent suggestion that

perhaps one of the reasons that she

was excommunicated from the church

in 1871 was because she raised the

alarm on a child sex abuse case.

Then there was a suggestion that it

followed that she could be the

patron saint of the abused, but

Cardinal George Pel downplayed it

and said that Mary didn't have much

to do with those issues and that

her nuns did report a paedophile

priest but she wasn't in charge of

them at the time. He did say that

she's now a universal saint to all

people and all prayers. Thank you

very much.

We'll be coming back to her

throughout the news hour.

Back home and thousands of people

also came together to watch the

historic event. The ceremony capped

off a day many had spend visiting

significant locations linked to

Mary's life, work and death.

If you couldn't make it to Rome,

this was the next best thing,

sharing the moment live with other

pilgrims in Mary Mackillop's home

very own Catholic saint.

To mark the historic occasion,

thousands of pilgrims flocked to

the rural town of Penola where Mary

Mackillop's religious journey began.

Penola is in the throes of

restoring itself to a relatively

quiet country town, but certainly,

everyone here made the most of the

biggest day in its history. They

said that the faithful would arrive,

and they did, to the tune of more

than 4,000. They celebrated mass in

the shadow of Penola's Catholic

Church where the Vatican flag flew.

The notoriously icy weather here in

Australia's south-east defeated

many, however, and a much smaller

crowd witnessed the cannonisation.

But there is no doubt that many of

them were overwhelmed by what they

saw. Absolutely fabulous. Being

born here, it's really something

that we never, ever thought that we'd see.

we'd see. The slogan for this

weekend was - Penola, where it all

began, and it will now be for

Penola which will be a destination

for religious pilgrims.

And two of Mary's miracles have

Veronica Hopson turned to prayer

after being cured from cancer 50

years ago. I feel very fortunate

that I was given the tune to live

my life. I do think that a miracle

has taken place, because it was out

of our hands. Mrs Hopson was the

first miracle recognised by the Vatican. The

Vatican. The second was that of

Kathleen Evans, who was cured of

lung and brain cancer in 1993.

Thousands of Australians inspired

by the work of Mary Mackillop

travelled to Vatican City to

celebrate the cannonisation. Our

correspondent was in St Peter's

Square for the celebrations.

Z well, what a celebration it has

been down here in St Peter's square.

Patient pilgrims wait Ford hours just to get into

just to get into the service, and

when they did, Australians were

simply everywhere. That, of course,

included the very excited Sisters

of St Joseph, who were sitting

amongst the huge crowd as we

witnessed the Ab King Pro

clammation of our nation's first --

the proclamation of our nation's

first saint, St Mary of the Cross. Overwhelming. Were

Overwhelming. Were there tears?

Some, yes, yes, there were. We're

very blessed, Australia, now. God

bless Australia. God bless

Australia, that is for sure. We

were the rowdy bunch to begin with.

When Mary's name was first

mentioned, the crowd absolutely

erupted, but with most of the

service read in Latin, there was a

lot of time for Australian familys

to refleck back on the life of St

Mary of the Cross.

Mary of the Cross. Her dedication,

her passion and the prayers that

they say she has answered. A simple

person doing a simple job can be

rewarded like that. Yeah, I think

that it is very important. Proud

pilgrims now say that our nation

has someone to look up to, and the

celebrations in the Vatican City

won't stop now. In fact, Australian

fever will be hanging arp here for

the next few days.

organ donor rate. At the moment, we

need to register for donation

the new scheme, only those opting

out of organ donation would have to

take the steps. If an opt-out

provision is brought in, that will

force people to make a decision

whether they're happy for that and

don't agree with their organs being donated.

Only 16% of West Australians choose

to donate their organs, but today,

most seem positive about the new

opt-out plan. I think it is a

brilliant idea. I think it

good morning. Minutes are

good morning. Minutes are out

tomorrow. But clearly, we're all

going to be watching it, whether

you're thinking about the

implications or investment markets

or your mortgage. The speculation

is that it will depend on the third

quarter inflation, but the Aussie

dollar strength has been keeping

import prices lower, so perhaps

lessening some of the concerns to

the RBA. Most economists were

surprised in October when they left

rates unchanged so the reading of the minutes tomorrow

the minutes tomorrow will be trying

to get a better idea of policy

the economy and also the interest

rates. How is the local market

likely to start the week? After a

is down, so a bit weaker here. And

Afghanistan just as Parliament

prepares to debate our involvement

in the conflict. A report posted

uncertain. For more on this, we're

Gillard and Opposition leader Tony

Abbott have both pledged

unwaivering support for the troops

in the war-torn country, so what

can tomorrow's debate achieve? I guess all

guess all it will do is reaffirm

how much political support there is

for the involvement there in

Afghanistan, but this debate was

brought about by the Greens leader

Bob Brown as his way of giving

support to Labor to form a minority

Government. Now, you can expect

that the Greens will definitely in

the talks oppose it, but really,

it's not expected that any more

than maybe one or two from either

Labor or the Liberals will give any sort of voice

sort of voice of Opposition to

Australia's involvement in

Afghanistan. That goes tomorrow

with the Prime Minister and then

the Opposition leader giving a

speech in Parliament before other

MPs can give their voice to the

debate. Another twist and turn out

at Canberra. The Opposition leader

was men to introduce legislation

opposing the controversial Wild

Rivers Law, but he's had a change

of heart on that? Yeah, this was

meant to happen this morning

meant to happen this morning as

Parliament got under way. Tony

Abbott wanted to bring in the Wild

Rivers Legislation that would reverse what the Queensland

Government put in place five years

ago, which basically put pretty

strict limitations on what people

could do with the land up around

Ten Rivers in Northern Queensland.

Now, one of the Aboriginal elder,

No el Pearson is a critic saying

that it hurts the chances

that it hurts the chances of jobs

and economics up there. But at the

last minute, Tony Abbott has agreed

to go and meet other indigenous

leader whos believe that Noel

Pearson is wrong in his opinion and

he'll head up to the Queensland

legislation, which may not come
