Mother Teresa to be declared a Saint


Recommended Posts

Still ticks me off the week she died was the same week that one of the dead blonds Elton John wrote about died. Diana got all the press versus a lady who gave her life to help others!

 

Seems a little harsh on Lady Di. She was hardly Teresa, but let's not pretend she was some shiftless layabout. The woman did a load of good work while she was around.

Compare the press to how much of their lives were dedicated to help others. One was a pretty princess, the other an old nun.

The 36-year-old mother to the future King of England dying in a car accident in which she may have been run off the road by a photographer on a motorcycle... that's news man.

 

Let's not pretend that Mother Teresa didn't have countless accolades in the media and everywhere else she went throughout her life. She was given the Nobel Peace Prize and she's about to be canonized as an example of heroic virtue by the Holy and Eternal Church of Rome.

I'm with you 100% on this post. It is what the people want.

Been reading her 1979 Nobel Lecture. An excerpt:

 

"There is so much suffering, so much hatred, so much misery, and we with our prayer, with our sacrifice are beginning at home. Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the action that we do. It is to God Almighty - how much we do it does not matter, because He is infinite, but how much love we put in that action. How much we do to Him in the person that we are serving."

 

"Love begins at home"... good thing to remember. I like that.
