Mary MacKillop, Rocket Nun!

So the 96 tram is now on a pilgrimage route.

Australia Counts Down To Canonisation

Mother Mary Mackillop is about to become Australia's first Roman Catholic saint. The countdown is underway.

She will blast off when the Pope recites an audio-activated password from the other side of the world.

Oh the power!

I do rather hope that Rocket Nun launches from Fitzroy (her birthplace), not Sydney(her grave). I like the idea of hipsters choking on their ...whatever it is hipsters drink these days...as she rumbles over Brunswick Street and into the inner city sky.

Rocket Nun - oh that is perfect. We have to make that name stick.

I know the headline didn't intend such a thing, but now it's definitely lodging into place in *my* head.

It would certainly get church numbers up among the young folk. And me. I'd so get into having a saint called Rocket Nun.

And of course her hymn would be Rocket Man, slightly reworded.
