    Mother Teresa, or Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, will be declared a saint in the Roman Catholic Church on September 4, Pope Francis announced on Tuesday. While it was announced in December that she had been cleared for sainthood, her date of canonization was announced today. Affectionately known as the "saint of the gutter" for her unconditional ?love ?for the poor, abandoned and marginalized, Mother Teresa earned several international honors, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. She was beatified in 2003 by Pope John Paul II after being attributed to a first miracle, answering an Indian woman's prayers to cure...

    VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis will preside over a consistory to approve the canonization of five men and women, including Blessed Teresa of Kolkata, the Vatican announced. The March 15 consistory will also determine the approval of canonization of Argentine "gaucho priest," Blessed Jose Gabriel del Rosario Brochero and Blessed Jose Sanchez del Rio, a 14-year-old Mexican boy martyred for refusing to renounce his faith during the Cristero War of the 1920s, the Vatican said March 7.

    In the 1994 Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, people are seen giving Mother Teresa of Calcutta a loud standing ovation. Of course, the cameras show Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as the Gores, sitting and almost frowning at the end of this 'rousing speech about the family'. Later, the Clintons tried to adopt a baby/child from Mother Teresa's Foundation. However, they could not as Mother Teresa had a strict policy not to give a child in adoption to a couple who had done things that prevented them from having children (contraception/abortion).

    Vatican City (dpa) - Mother Teresa's path to sainthood was cleared Friday, after the Vatican confirmed that Pope Francis had approved a decision to attribute a second miracle to the Catholic nun who dedicated her life to India's poor. Italian bishops' newspaper Avvenire first reported Thursday, on Francis' 79th birthday, that the pontiff ratified the findings of the Vatican's saint-making committee on the miraculous healing of a man suffering from serious brain disease. The patient from Santos, Brazil, was diagnosed with "viral brain infection that resulted in multiple abscesses with triventricular hydrocephalus," Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, the prelate steering Teresa's canonization,...

    NEW YORK CITY, November 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – "Free and Equal," a United Nations campaign advancing homosexual interests, is using pictures of a candidate for Catholic sainthood, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and her words to promote its agenda. Susan Yoshihara of C-FAM, The Center for Family and Human Rights, says the whole campaign is a fraud, so it is no surprise that it is misleading people by suggesting that devoutly Catholic Mother Teresa supported the homosexual agenda.

Her health had been declining, the order said, but it did not specify the cause of death.

Sister Nirmala was selected to lead the charity six months before the death of Mother Teresa, its founder, in 1997. Mother Teresa...

Last week, Obama famously used the National Prayer Breakfast to scold Christians for having more than their fair share of scalawags who have hijacked their religion, lest we judge these professed Muslims who are killing, raping, and pillaging all over the world. Thus, there is a moral equivalence between Islam and Christianity. We all have our good and our bad apples. He said, "Unless we get on our high horse and think...

    Dear Friend of CatholicVote, I have wonderful news. The Mother Teresa stamp is coming! Over 138,000 friends of CatholicVote.org joined together to defend the stamp to honor Mother Teresa. And the Postal Service took notice. Roy Betts, a spokesman for the Postal Service, told CatholicVote.org yesterday: The stamp will be dedicated September 5 [at] the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. Feel free to post information about the stamp, the image and the dedication ceremony on your website. Thanks! Wow. Launching the stamp at a church. The anti-religion radicals are going to go wild!...

    I have read Christopher Hitchenss book God Is Not Great twice, in preparation for a book I have co-written with Biola University philosopher Dr. John Mark Reynolds. Due to come out this spring, our book is titled Against All Gods: Whats Right and Wrong About the New Atheism. Because not all readers may know at once who the new atheists are, I will say that they are a group of very fervent opponents of religion, of whom the best known are zoologist and science popularizer Richard Dawkins, Tufts University philosopher Daniel Dennett, and Hitchens. What is new about these atheists...

    US Postal Service (USPS) due to issue stamp commemorating Mother Teresa, the Freedom From Religion Foundation objects The FFRF was established in the USA which is a nation that was premised upon the concept of freedom of religious expression Now, note the logical steps which discredit [the FFRFs] objection: 1) Criterion No. 6 states that stamps shall not be issued to various organizations. 2) But the organization Mother Teresa ran and was inextricably identified with Roman Catholicism, etc. 3) Therefore, her organization is not being honored on the stamp: Mother Teresa is being honored. It is really as simple as...

    For some atheists, a person should not be honored for decades of humanitarian work if she also happens to be a professing Christian. Thats the only conclusion one can draw from the recent uproar of the Freedom From Religion Foundation over the U.S. Postal Services commemorative stamp featuring 1979 Nobel Prize winner Mother Teresa. Theres this knee jerk response that everything she did was humanitarian, griped FFRF spokeswoman Annie Laurie Gaylor, according to a Jan. 28 Fox News article. And I think many people would differ that what she doing was to promote religion, and what she wanted to do...

    An atheist organization is blasting the U.S. Postal Service for its plan to honor Mother Teresa with a commemorative stamp, saying it violates postal regulations against honoring "individuals whose principal achievements are associated with religious undertakings." The Freedom from Religion Foundation is urging its supporters to boycott the stamp -- and also to engage in a letter-writing campaign to spread the word about what it calls the "darker side" of Mother Teresa. The stamp -- set to be released on Aug. 26, which would have been Mother Teresa's 100th birthday -- will recognize the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner for...

    A prominent atheist organization in America is attacking Mother Teresa as unworthy of being honored with a memorial stamp, as the U.S. Postal Service has announced. In fact, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is advocating that its constituents "vote with your pocketbook, and boycott these stamps." The group also suggests, "If this choice of a polarizing Roman Catholic figurehead or the Post Office's flagrant violation of its own policy distresses you, let the Post Office know (by mail or e-mail) … Or make this the subject of an educational letter to the editor, or simply use this opportunity to enlighten...

    I love all religions. If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there. Or in another place, All is God Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God. We see, then, that Mother Teresa held beliefs that contradict many Biblical principles. Chief among these principles is that Christ is the only means of salvation. In John 14:6 Jesus states, I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. By teaching that all religion could...
  • Christopher Hitchens Manages to Top Richard Dawkins, Assails Mother Theresa (Calls her a Fraud)

    Catholics and other Christians probably don't care what anyone says about them anymore, given the relative lack of outrage over Richard Dawkins' comments in The Washington Post this week. (See blog post below). So who will notice what Christopher Hitchens just unloaded on the Dennis Miller show this morning? Miller, let it be said, was not buying it at all--merely letting Hitchens spout this about abortion and Mother Theresa: "Mother Theresa spent her whole life saying (that what Calcutta needs) is a huge campaign against family planning. I mean, who comes to that conclusion who isn't a complete fanatic? She...
