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.
