Mother Teresa Getting Shot out of a Canon
« on: December 19, 2015, 05:30:00 PM »
The Catholic Church announced that Mother Teresa will be shot out of a cannon in September of 2016, which will apparently make her a saint.

Question for Catholic forum members: why aren't professionals shot out of a cannon at the circus considered saints?

Discuss....

That's the whole point.

Some of you guys need humor adjustments.

I have read various articles that her clinics were haphazard at best and that not much was done to relieve suffering despite large donations to her organization.

I agree with Toby. He's made a joke that should appeal to all the third graders in our group.

I have read that the real Mother Teresa vanished sometime in 1969, having been replaced with a look-alike imposter by extraterrestrial aliens for reasons of their own.

Conditions at her medical clinics were deplorable with needles being reused and very little being done to actually ease the suffering of the sick and dying.  Her heart may have been in the right place but she probably isn't worthy of sainthood.

It's ok to disagree.  I just don't think she really did much to actually relieve pain and suffering.

sometimes when you're hurting or suffering all you want is someone to acknowledge your pain.  if she did that without shying away from them because of disease or poverty then that's quite a bit.  how often do you yourself reach out to those you see in need? if her order or her movement did not always stay on the path or accomplish as much as the stories about her say, then so be it.  if she brought comfort to someone in need then good for her.

I wonder if they're going to talk about how she lost her faith in God near the end of her life.

Oh and in Portugal they canonize their saints by shooting them out of cannons, which is a reference no one will get haha
