Mother Teresa to be canonized

On Wednesday, pope Francis approved a decree confirming a second miracle attributed toMTTTT the intercession of Mother Teresa, clearing the way for her to be canonized as a “saint” in 2016.

Mother Teresa died in 1997 and it’s VERY unusual for someone to be proclaimed a “saint” after only 19 years but the church knows it has a very hot marketing commodity on its hands.

Even some Evangelical pastors have used Mother Teresa as an example of “Christian” charity in their sermons but when you peel back the onion a few layers you’ll find there’s more to Mother Teresa’s legacy than the popular, group-think affirmations. I’ve already published a couple of posts on Mother Teresa here and here so I’ll restrain myself from any additional commentary.

Christian radio and podcast host, Todd Friel, provides some very interesting thoughts on Mother Teresa in a You Tube audio here.
