Zoo Magazine's Treatment of Mary is an Insult to Everyone

Last edited 27th October 2010

Melinda Tankard Reist critiques the Zoo Magazine treatment of Mary MacKillop: "Australia’s first saint, Mary MacKillop, was a woman who devoted her life to the poor and speaking out against injustice. Known as a progressive woman of action, her canonisation has just been celebrated in Rome. But for Zoo magazine, it doesn’t matter who she is. Or really, who any woman is. Because all women exist only to serve male gratification and pleasure. All women must be brought to their knees." Click here to read Xt3's statement!

That is one reason why it is so amazing to watch “St. Gianna Beretta Molla: A Modern Day Hero of Divine Love,” a new DVD about a saint who lived in our own time. Visit this article for a review of the DVD!
