MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA: now a saint of the church

More Australians than usual attended church last Sunday.
Many celebrated the canonisation of Mother Teresa of Calcutta – now officially known as “Saint Teresa”.
Mother Teresa is respected by Catholics and non-Catholics for her love of the “poorest of the poor”.
There are knockers of course.
Atheist writer, Christopher Hitchens, called her a “thieving, fanatical Albanian dwarf” – mainly because she opposed abortion.
I liked the comment of a fellow-writer comparing Hitchens with Mother Teresa: “If you were sitting in the gutter in rags in Calcutta, which would be the more likely to give you a bowl of soup?”
Yes, we need more Mother Teresa’s in this world.
