    Just read M Teresa has been canonized.

    Is this sainthood really necessary in the modern age?

    She has her critics.

    I am an RC and have been to church on the odd occasion but have never taken it seriously.

    Look at how my life turned out. Fast cars, money and other things. Thank the one above for being born out west!

    Now if I was born in a developing country and found myself crook in a dodgy hospital with no sanitation or medicine and told that my illness was God's gift and to just suck it up.....I'd be pleading to be transferred to M Teresa's treating hospital.....the one that gave her a pacemaker and kept her going for over 20 years lol.

    She certainly does have her critics.

    Canonisation is often more a political activity than a religious one. It's something which has been done fairly frequently recently- like Mary McKillop, who herself probably would not have been even in the running had she been from a country which already had its share of saints.

    The vision of the Virgin Mary (The Virginia ofor Guadalupe) by an Indian in the early years of Spanish rule in Mexico facilitated the spread of the church into Mexico, making it one of the most racially integrated in the continent.

    Hang on, Mother Teresa was born in 1910 and you're 25. It's not possible.

    And I'm not one of those critics.

    I think she deserves a sainthood, Datto. Even Google doesnt know about how she excelled at performing burnouts in a Torana in the church carpark burnout competition, and then unselfishly gave the award to a disadvantaged local teenager who's (unregistered and uninsured) car had recently been repossessed by a fascist finance company...

    He did manage to get a licence by Recognized Prior Learning having knocked off several cars as a twelve year old and taken them for joy rides.

    She would have never attained Sainthood otherwise.

    In a world full of apathy and disconnection, a person who shows compassion for other human beings deserves to be recognised.

    I have no idea about the political and religious bs you guys are talking about - call it what you want. She was a good person. That is all.

    They were tough times that she worked in. Poverty stricken.

    That's probably why the syringes had to be reused from patient to patient according to her critics.

    Looks like the church couldn't afford the cost of new ones. Maybe the plate should have been passed one more time at least.
