    It’s been said that saints often come in pairs. Sts. Peter and Paul, Mary and Joseph, Francis and Clare, and Louis and Zelie Martin are just a handful of such saints, coupled together through marriage or friendship. Perhaps the best-known modern saintly pair of friends would be Mother Teresa and John Paul II, whose lives intersected many times during her time as Mother Superior of the Missionaries of Charity, and his pontificate. When John Paul II came to visit Mother Teresa’s home in the heart of the slums in Kolkata in 1986, Mother Teresa called it “the happiest day of...

    ROME — Mother Teresa, who dedicated her life to helping India's poor, will be made a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican said Friday. She will likely be canonized in September to coincide with the 19th anniversary of her death and Pope Francis' Holy Year of Mercy, according to an Italian Catholic newspaper report. The pontiff marked his 79th birthday on Thursday by approving a decree that the nun had performed a second miracle 11 years after her death, the Vatican confirmed in a statement. She was beatified in 2003 as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for healing an...
  • Pope Francis Should’ve Been More Like Mother Teresa in Meeting Kim Davis

    Christian Post ^ | 10/02/2015 | Richard Land
    Pope Francis made a powerful statement by meeting with gay marriage dissenter Kim Davis. But imagine how much more powerful it would have been had the meeting been public, rather than private. Pope Francis has come and gone. His five-day sojourn in America started with a visit to Washington, D.C. (including speaking to a joint session of the U.S. Congress), continued in New York City (including a speech to the U.N. General Assembly) and concluded with a World Congress of Families in Philadelphia. What should one make of this historic visit? The mass appeal generated by the pope's visit,...

    An atheist group at Dartmouth College is planning an event aimed at skewering the reputation of the late Mother Teresa. The Atheists Humanists Agnostics (AHA) club sent out a campus-wide e-mail announcing the program on Tuesday and promising a “full-out romp against why one of the most beloved people of the century, Mother Teresa, is as Hitchens put it… ‘a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf.’” The e-mail says the group plans to screen an anti-Mother Teresa film, discuss Hitchens’ book, Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice, and question how the public has been “conned into thinking this woman [Teresa]...

    The anti-religion crusaders are at it again. This time they want the Post Office to cancel a planned new stamp honoring Mother Teresa. I am continually shocked by the persistence of these activist groups. They seem to never give up! Any mention or reference of God must be wiped out. The Pledge of Allegiance, In God We Trust, you name it… they want it boarded up, whitewashed, and banished from our public life. But not this time. Not Mother Teresa.

  • 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...
  • Pope May Have Been Euthanized

    A new article by an Italian medical professor speculates the death of Pope John Paul the Second was caused by euthanasia. According to "TIME" magazine, an intensive care specialist says the Pope's death would be considered euthanasia by standards set by the Catholic Church. The doctor bases her conclusion on press reports and a book written by the Pope's physician. She says the decision not to insert a feeding tube until just a few days before his death accelerated the death of the ailing pontiff. Plus, the doctor believes the Pope himself made the decision not to insert the tube...

The national Catholic-based advocacy group Fidelis called on the campaign to remove the image from the video.  "It is wholly inappropriate, disrespectful and disturbing that Hillary Clinton is using an image of Blessed Mother Teresa as a political tool, especially given their...

    MUSLIMS in Albania's northern city of Shkoder are opposing plans to erect a statue to Mother Teresa, the ethnic Albanian Catholic nun in line for elevation to sainthood by the Vatican. The dispute is unusual for Albania, where religion was banned for 27 years under the dictator Enver Hoxha, and "mixed" marriages are the norm. Seventy per cent of the population are liberal Muslims, the rest are Christian Orthodox and Catholic. But Muslim groups in Shkoder rejected the local council plan for a statue, saying it "would offend the feelings of Muslims". "We do not want this statue to be...

    New York, May. 26, 2005 (CNA) - Shareholders in the media giant, Viacom, will be greeted by many unhappy faces as they enter a meeting at New York’s Marriot Marquis Hotel this afternoon. William Donahue, president of the Catholic League, an organization for religious and civil rights, is leading a charge, railing against the company, and their subsidiary, Showtime, for airing a program which they call “a full frontal assault” on the late Mother Theresa and the Catholic Church. The program, “Holier than thou”, starring magician entertainers Penn and Teller, paints Mother Theresa and her Sisters of Charity as “cruel,...

    Their missions were different, one devoting her life to ministering to the poor the sick and the dying, and the other to administering the affairs of the Roman Catholic Church and carrying the word of Christ throughout the world. But Pope John Paul II and Blessed Mother Theresa delivered and lived the same message: life must be lived in and for Jesus Christ and in service to others. Mother Theresa put it this way: "Whatever you do for your family, for your children, for your husband, for your wife, you do for God … Let no one ever come...

    SKOPJE, Macedonia. Just about everyone in this city accepts that Mother Teresa was a good person. That's about all they agree on. As the late nun and Nobel Peace Prize laureate heads toward sainthood, a distinctively Balkan quarrel has broken out over bragging rights to her ancestry. The world knows her as Albanian. Or should that be Macedonian? Or Vlach? And what about Kosovo? Mother Teresa's message of borderless Christian love has run up against the historic fractures that led to six months of fighting in this Balkan country between ethnic Albanian insurgents and Macedonian troops in 2001. The same...

    Interview with Missionary of Charity Father Brian KolodiejchukROME, OCT. 10, 2003 (Zenit) - How was a frail little woman able to become one of the most outstanding figures of the 20th century, dedicating herself to the "poorest of the poor"? For the answer to this and other questions, Zenit interviewed Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, co-founder of the priestly branch of the Missionaries of Charity and postulator of Mother Teresa's cause of beatification, which will take place Oct. 19. This is the first of a three-part interview. Part 2 appears Sunday. Q: Last Dec. 20, the decree of a miracle attributed to...

    Pope credits Mother Teresa with miracle December 21, 2002BY NICOLE WINFIELD VATICAN CITY--Mother Teresa, the Roman Catholic nun who spent much of her life caring for the poor of Calcutta's slums, moved a step closer to sainthood Friday when Pope John Paul II approved a miracle credited to her intercession. With the miracle, Mother Teresa will be beatified in a ceremony scheduled for Oct. 19 in Rome, her order said. The date is the Catholic Church's Mission Sunday, and the Sunday closest to the 25th anniversary of John Paul's election as pope. John Paul, who has elevated more than 460...
