Fr. John Bonavitacola A Letter from Fr. John

Albanian Dwarf or Giant Saint?

08-28-2016Fr. John Bonavitacola

Dear Friends,

Was she a “lying, thieving, Albanian dwarf --less interested in helping the poor than in using them as an indefatigable source of wretchedness on which to fuel the expansion of her fundamentalist Roman Catholic beliefs" as Christopher Hitchens, not known as a great humanitarian, wrote in his book Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice? Or was it true that she had, as a group of Canadian Academics once opined: "her rather dubious way of caring for the sick, her questionable political contacts . . . and her overly dogmatic views regarding abortion, contraception, and divorce." Then there was always the criticism that the houses she set up in Calcutta for the sick and dying were subpar and the medical care was medieval. In that view I guess it was better for people to die on the streets of Calcutta than die in a house that didn't measure up to Western medical standards. And of course there was the accusation that she was in love with poverty and not the poor.
