In the first week of September, 2016 when Mother Teresa gets canonised by the Vatican, her life and times would be projected as if she was God’s gift to the humanity? But is it the reality?
It is time to go back to credible works exposing the hypocrisy of Mother Teresa in documentary “Hell’s Angel” and Christopher Hitchen’s damning indictment of Mother Teresa’ in “The Missionary Position.
Why no one is referring to the first person accounts of the people who have worked with Mother Teresa and in her organisation “Missionary of Charity
We are going to try and find answer to the basic question whether Mother Teresa deserved to be called a saint?
To begin with let us recall what Susan Shields had to say about her experience. Shields worked for nine-and-half years with Missionary of Charity in Bronx, Rome and San Francisco. Interestingly, she wrote a book called “In Mother’s House” but could never found a publisher! Noted journalist Christopher Hitchens, author of “The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in theory and practice”
observed, “It seems to me a disgrace that such an original piece of courageous work should have failed to find a publisher when the Pope can receive an advance of around $5million for the book he did not write.”
Shields gives a damning evidence of how Missionary of Charity under the leadership of Mother Teresa was rampantly used for conversions:
“In the homes for the dying, Mother taught the sisters how to secretly baptize those who were dying. Sisters were to ask each person in danger of death if he wanted a “ticket to heaven”. An affirmative reply was to mean consent to baptism. The sister was then to pretend she was just cooling the person’s forehead with a wet cloth, while in fact she was baptizing him, saying quietly the necessary words. Secrecy was important so that it would not come to be known that Mother Teresa’s sisters were baptizing Hindus and Muslems”
