The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light,
Dear Readers,

A person becomes Saint in life day by day along years of really holy life of piety, charity for all and good works, but of course officially it is Saint as soon as the Vatican decree is ready.

This week finally we have the great news of the canonization of Mother Therese of Calcuta.

www.usatoday.com...

Rumors are so strong that this Tuesday we are going to awake with the first Saint and Nobel Prize recipient ever.

Thanks for your attention,

The Angel of Lightness

The bible would disagree

Question: "What are Christian saints according to the Bible?"

Answer: The word “saint” comes from the Greek word hagios, which means “consecrated to God, holy, sacred, pious." It is almost always used in the plural, “saints.” "…Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he did to Your saints at Jerusalem" (Acts 9:13). "Now as Peter was traveling through all those regions, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda" (Acts 9:32). "And this is just what I did in Jerusalem; not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons …“ (Acts 26:10). There is only one instance of the singular use, and that is "Greet every saint in Christ Jesus…" (Philippians 4:21). In Scripture there are 67 uses of the plural “saints” compared to only one use of the singular word “saint.” Even in that one instance, a plurality of saints is in view: “…every saint…” (Philippians 4:21).
www.gotquestions.org...

So a Saint is a servant of God in Jesus, as in every true saint is a christian

The Catholics, God bless them think only those they choose to deify are saints, God bless them
Its a lie

Anyway, Theresa was an exceptional woman who carried out an exceptional mission

A better Christian than many protestants

Funny Hitchens, he did very little for the poor and can act like he is a hero, freeing the world from oppression, when Teresa freed people from real affliction, hunger and disease.

What a funny little man

Academics suggest Hitch called it right on Mother Teresa


Mother Teresa wasn't so very saintly, a new study reports.

Canadian academics trawled through 96 per cent of all originally researched literature on the Catholic icon and concluded that her reputation as one of the holiest women of the twentieth century was the product of hype.

Researchers allege missing funds for humanitarian work and homes for the poor that did not offer the medical care they required, leaving many to die.

The bad man is the good mans business,who ya gonna save in church,yep she played politics,took money even the devils money at times,her clinics may not of been western standards but is there a good hospital in all of India I doubt it,yes she travelled the world,yes the vatican got a cut of the money.Everything from the local parish up pays the vatican a cut,the church at that time was against contraception and promiscuity as a representative of the church that was the position she had to argue,of course she was more interested in conversion than treatment she was a missionary.

No its not a perfect world,means will and means must,even good people sometimes have to deal with the devil,and if you have hundreds of employees and thousands of people to look after meet the devil you will.

The church is obviously convinced of the veracity of several miracles performed in the Saints name and conducts exhaustive examinations before they declare someone a Saint.I am a Buddhist but even I know this was a person who did much for others,is it the fact shes Christian that these media people try to drag her name down into the gutter without even walking one footstep in her shoes

Well, Christopher Hitchens has been dead for a while now too.

Perhaps he could be acknowledged by some socialist organization or atheistic think tank for his many self-sacrificing contributions towards humanity?

... oh, wait a minute ...

Of course Dear Prezbo, that is the upside down logic of all this false and evil rhetoric against her.

it is very clear what is attracting people that are attacking the memory of Mother Teresa. They can't forgive her the fact that she was a Roman Catholic nun all her life, although she was born in a country that actually is majoritarian Muslim, Albania.

They are clearly moved by a feeling of enmity against the Catholic Church, to reply in the thread with a bunch of calumnies and extremely distorted interpretations of the facts to try to "expose" a woman that was an example to the world.

The Norway Academy that grants the Nobel Peace Award studied the life of this woman along decades before to grant her their recognition, quite rare that all these "frauds" were never substantiated.

My Question is where were you when she was given her life for love to the most humble to the ones are rejected and leaving to live in Misery? where were the people that is fabricated these horrendous and disgusting accusations against her?

Why the accusations appear now and not when she was practically unknown and she was carried her so difficult mission almost anonymously?


Raymond L. Flynn is a former mayor of Boston and a former U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.: Today will be a glorious day for everyone committed to helping the poor. It will be a day when those who volunteer in soup kitchens, halfway houses and homeless shelters will feel as if their unsung heroism matters.

Their “Angel of the Streets” — my term — Mother Teresa of Calcutta, will be recommended by a special Vatican committee to be elevated to the status of Saint Teresa.


Pls check:

Mother Teresa
s of Calcutta: God does not call you to be successful, He calls you to be faithful


Pls check:

www.shareyouressays.com...


Mother Therese of Calcutta:
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”


There is something this terrible people that has come here to offend the memory of this great woman has forgotten. In 1997 two great women died practically in the same week, the extremely humble mother of the most poor of the world, the other the Mother of the future King of one of the richest monarchic houses of the world.

Mother Teresa and Princess Diana were both incredibly merciful with many but the great difference is that while the United Kingdom denied to Diana a State Funeral as her rank clearly deserved, India instead offered one to this nun that lied in the same mound used in the funerals of Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru.

Do you really eat all this garbage of false scandals invented by people that hate her just for what she represents? If they were truly India never would have Honored in the way they did, that is absolutely clear. She was not even Indian born so nobody in this world could force them to offer such a burial to her.

Dear?...

While I do consider the Catholic church to be quite despicable (it has sheltered and hidden child rapists to protect itself amongst other such crimes) I have not made a habit of attacking anyone for merely being a member of that organisation. This is nothing but a weak attempt at diversion and another example of a christian attempting to play the victim card.

'Mother' Teresa has been famous for better or worse, for the past few decades all over the world. But this lack of knowledge of the subject at hand along with your unwavering support despite all the evidence in this thread alone, is very typical of those that just believe what they want to believe...

No, that's not it. It's the fact that she had a sick fetish for collecting starving and suffering people, giving them just enough medicine to placate, but not heal them, enough food to keep them alive but not satiate their hunger.

Have you ever checked how many accusations or rape are right now around the world in almost all religious congregations?

There are Rabbis, Protestant Ministers, Pastors, School Teachers, why so diverse population is falling in this disgusting behavior? that has nothing to do with Catholicism or any other religion, is because Internet has become the highway of Pornography , and it is the Pornographic Industry what it is working so hard to spread all kind of abominations to every possible place.

Pentecostal Pastor in New Zeland and Australia Paedophilia Scandal

Ex Ontario Deputy recognize involved in Incest scandal

Sussex and Cambridge University faculty claims Paedophilia is normal!!

The Porno Mafias that control such evil industry in San Fernando Valley, California, and in the City of Sin , Las Vegas, are behind the huge increase on all these sexual perversity along the world, they have transformed the web in the pathway to hell for millions.

Tom Watson British Minister Paedophilia scandal

Westminster Paedophilia Ring Scandal

Fall of the Paedophilan Rabbis

Paedophilia Rampant in Orthodox Judaism

There is no evidence at all that even Catholicism has highest rank of Pedophilia than other religious groups, the data is showing that there is an overwhelming spread of this criminal practice along the world in our time, and almost every case is linked with consumption of online child pornography.

Open your eyes and verify that we are living in the country that is promoting more sexual perversion perhaps in the entire world!

Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness

So it's to do with Internet porn?

That clears that up.

Oh wait, it doesn't. There were peadophiles way before the Internet.

How about you take off your rose tinted glasses and see the world for what it really is?

Are you denying the fact that the Vatican has shielded, hidden and protected child rapists in order to protect its own image?

Of course you are, and you fit in very well with that organisation.

Don't forget that when it came time to suffer on her deathbed she didn't opt to go that route, instead opting to fly to the states and have top rate medical care provided to her.

... oh, wait a minute ...


What self sacrificing contributions did Mother Theresa make? She was nothing more than a money funnel for the Vatican. Instead of actually caring for and treating the sick whose care she was charged with, she used them as her own personal piggy bank to funnel donations.Despite routinely receiving millions of dollars in donations, Teresa deliberately kept her clinics barren and austere, lacking all but the most rudimentary and haphazard care. No tests were performed to determine the patients’ ailments. No modern medical equipment was available. Even people dying of cancer, suffering terrible agony, were given no painkillers other than aspirin. Needles were rinsed and reused, without proper sterilization. No one was ever sent to the hospital, even people in clear need of emergency surgery or other treatment.

it is important to note that these conditions were not the unavoidable result of triage. Teresa’s organization routinely received multimillion-dollar donations which were squirreled away in bank accounts, while volunteers were told to beg donors for more money and plead extreme poverty and desperate need. The money she received could easily have built half a dozen fully equipped modern hospitals and clinics, but was never used for that purpose. No, this negligent and rudimentary care was deliberate – about which, see the next point. However, despite her praise for poverty, Teresa hypocritically sought out the most advanced care possible in the Western world when she herself was in need of it.

She felt that it was far more important to convert the sick and dying than it was to actually treat them with medicine. That's some really Saintly behavior right? One of my personal favorite anecdotes of Mother Teresa is when talking to a main dying an agonizing death from cancer, she told him how lucky he was because he was getting to suffer like Christ did on the cross so Jesus must be kissing him. The man's reply was to tell Jesus to stop kissing him. She referred to AIDS as “just retribution for improper sexual conduct”. She ignored the correlation between overpopulation and poverty with her anti-contraceptive stance. I could go on for hours. She genuinely believed that these people were brought closer to God through their suffering. If that's the god worshipped by all followers of Christ, I'll take my chances with a flying spaghetti monster or Chtulu.

She was nothing but a front man who played the role of Piety to an ignorant audience to fill bank accounts for the Vatican but wasn't willing to suffer like her patients when it came time for her to be ill. I'm glad I walked away from the Catholic Church if they beatify and bestow arbitrary Sainthood on people like this.

Just when I thought the catholic church made progress in the right direction they push back their poster child from a more corrupt era. There are millions of souls who are true saints in behavior regardless of religion and saying Theresa is part of them is from my point of view a slander to all those souls.

She was a very complicated person with lots of baggage. She did the best she could, which is more than I can say.
May God bless her always, as he will knowing she was only human after all, during her time here.

Sometimes our flesh and blood, as well as our individual psychologies interferes with the good we would like to do. She fought her weaknesses well.
