I really wish Mother Teresa was here to give her opinion on this one! My vote is she'd tell them to stop talking about her and go do something nice for somebody. I don't think she wanted to be a saint. I believe she knew she was flawed and I don't imagine she'd like this saint nonsense. One of many reasons I could see her refusing to accept the title is... she was trying to tell people anybody can go help, be kind and love others.
I think the only real miracle she ever performed was not giving the world the middle finger and living out the end of her days alone. I truly believe she even saw through the corruption, games and lies of her religion and the church but knew how to play them so she could keep trying to help people. Looks like they are figuring out how to use her right back trying to give us a modern saint. A saint is a superhero the church tries to convince people was real. She was real but not foolish enough to thinks she was a super hero or want to be one.
Well, guess we all need heroes sometimes. Her order really wants it to happen and I haven't examined their reasons. Christopher Hitchens tried to stop it out of atheists spite. He was a smart guy I respected in a lot of ways but he could also be an ass just to be an ass. He was just being an ass on this one. Ironically if he would have actually studied her he would have seen she didn't want to be a saint either so they both wanted the same out come for different reasons. He had an ego propelling him to prove Christian idols are fake... she was humble never asking to be an idol. And yet she was viciously attacked by someone that cared about his own agenda against religion and gave no mind to Mother Teresa's actually message and spirit. I really think she doesn't want this. It's so sad people can't just let her actions and words be her legend.
