These 'tiny saints' are wonderful reminders of those who have gone before us, who have persevered in living Gospel values.

Each Tiny Saints has a short biographical sketch on the back of its packaging.
Biographical information on the back of the package:
Mary MacKillop co-founded Australia’s first order of nuns, the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart, in 1866. The sisters started their work in a converted stable, providing free education to children of any background. They soon opened an orphanage, a refuge for women released from prison and ministries for the homeless. A force for the message of Christ’s love, Mary’s intelligence, leadership, passion and autonomous spirit shook up the Church in Australia. In the end, Mary’s holiness was her legacy. In 1909, upon his last visit to her, Cardinal Moran stated, “Today, I believe that I have assisted at the death bed of a saint.”
