  • She deserves it more than anyone

    Mother Theresa was an amazing woman with a heart of gold. Her life's mission was to serve others, to provide help and aide to those who needed it the most. She followed her faith in every aspect of her life, and never a bad word was said of her. She is truly one of the most deserving of sainthood.

  • Mother Theresa Deserves Sainthood

    Mother Theresa does deserve sainthood for her important volunteer work in the slums of Calcutta. She described herself as asking God to cut her heart open so she could feel the whole world's pain - surely this is a saintly mindset! Indeed, her example has inspired others to pursue volunteer work, something that saints of the past have also inspired.

  • There can be no doubt

    To those quoting Hitchens book as a source for their criticism please hold back the false claims. Ive read a book by Katherine Spink who actively worked with Mother Teresa over several years and she only had a glowing report. Hitchens travelled to Calcutta did not interview MT or any of the sisters, did not interview any of the people she helped and failed to actively participate in her work. His book has no footnotes, no sources and no endnotes. This book would receive an F in every college. All this book is is a fallacious account by a man who was an "ultimate satire upon himself" as Richard Seymour states.

  • Of course she does

    Over 500 houses for the poor and the homeless set up as a result of her selfless nature. Many more people have been inspired. What grasps me as hilarious is the amount of people criticising her who probably have much more material items than they need or deserve. Furthermore they are all probably going by Hitchens' "Missionary Position" as a basis for their criticism. Funny how ye criticise Mother Teresa and yet endorse a man who openly supported the Iraq war, its bombing campaign and its lethal chemical warfare, not to mention that he is a self-identified Marxist. Love the hypocrisy.

  • She Was A Saint

    SHe Was a Saint. Many Saints were examples at first and now they are dead. She perfect match. Amen God bless america cause bacon is tasty and mother was too. God forgive me for i have sinned amen bless yall with helth and weed. God is great beer is good and people are crazy

  • This is a test

    Mother Theresa was an amazing woman with a heart of gold. Her life's mission was to serve others, to provide help and aide to those who needed it the most. She followed her faith in every aspect of her life, and never a bad word was said of her. She is truly one of the most deserving of sainthood.

  • No fecking way.

    Is the church so desperate to be relevant they will raise the reputation of such a despicable human being to the giddy heights of sainthood? I suspect its all about the money. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • Mother Teresa was an example, not a saint.

    Mother Teresa should be looked to by Catholics as an example of someone who lived a positive life. She was kind and selfless, and example of how everyone should live their life. By rising her up to sainthood, it shows that her level of caring and kindness could not be reached by just anyone.

  • A big lie

    I also have read up on Hitchen's book about her, as well as documentaries. She was no the woman that everyone made her out to be. She had enough money to build a student hospital, but instead let many people die needlessly, not to mention that they were all given the same needles in her hospice, without being cleaned properly. She also excepted donations from people who were not, lets say, in check with the law.

  • Christopher Hitchen's Thesis on Mother Teresa.

    Hitchens argued in great lenght about this topic, but I'll only use the "poor as virtue" argument.

    Mother Teresa, had various ideological ideas that can be considered as dangerous. For example, she thought AIDS was good because sex can't be practiced in a "deviated" way and she was against abortion because women can't choose over their bodies. Worst of all, she thought that being poor was a virtue. Instead of helping others in need in a straightforward, concise way, she sometimes let poor people suffer due to poor medical help that could be given to them and save their lives. More proof of this can be found in the documentary "Mother Teresa: Hell's Angel".

  • No she doesnt

    Mother Teresa has been granted sainthood based on the two miracles whom they claim to have happened due to her. However, there have been no proofs or medical documents that support this. Moreover her beliefs are making life worse for many people who really need help. People could resort to the so called "miracle" instead of seeking genuine medical help, which could be disastrous.

  • No. Nobody does.

    Sainthood is just a cheap tool to light up the fundamentalist catholic church's flame. Mother Teresa was constantly in the middle of debates and polemic. Modern society should have less and less space for blind faith on venerated corpses. Historical, political, and social recognition? Of course. Sanctification? Please.... No more.
