Christians who lay down their life to save others, following in the footsteps and teaching of Jesus, will now be eligible for beatification, Pope Francis told us. Beatification is the first step on the path toward sainthood and has in the past been reserved for three categories of people: martyrs, those who have lived a life of heroic values and others with a clear saintly reputation.
“The heroic offering of life, suggested and sustained by charity, expresses a true, full and exemplary imitation of Christ,” Francis told us. Candidates for beatification under the new pathway could include Christians who tended to sick people with the plague and later died because of the disease.
It could also apply to Chiara Corbella. Corbella was a 28-year-old Italian woman who refused treatment for carcinoma, a type of skin cancer, while pregnant because it would have risked the life of her unborn child. She died in 2012, nearly a year after giving birth when the cancer had become terminal and treatment was ineffective.
Such Christians, Francis told us, are worthy of that admiration which the community of the faithful has usually reserved for those who have voluntarily accepted the martyrdom of blood or have exercised the Christian virtues to a heroic degree. To be beatified, the free and voluntary offering of life must be defined by the heroic acceptance out of charity of certain death in a short term.
Francis also said that possible candidates must have practiced Christian values in their life before their selfless act and have a holy reputation. Christians who are sainted through martyrdom are the only ones exempt from being involved in a miracle.
Vatican is a disgusting mill of saints. Miracles are very profitable hoaxes. Some saints are the greatest corrupt sinners! Padre Pio was a charlatan stigmatist and sexual harasser, Saint Constantine murdered his wife and son, and so it goes. Sainthoods can be bought for a couple of million euros, and indulgences and absolutions for a few thousand euros!
Mother Teresa considered suffering a gift from God! As a result, while her clinics received millions of dollars in donations, their conditions drew criticism from people disturbed by the shortage of medical care, systematic diagnosis, and necessary nutrition, as well as the scarcity of analgesics for those in pain. She was a fundamental contradiction. She raised a billion dollars for her charity, yet only 4% of this was used in catering to the poor, with the rest going to Vatican to buy her sainthood. The additional money could have had transformative effects on the health of the poor by creating advanced palliative care facilities. Her opposition to abortion and contraception is inhuman.
This returns us to the medieval corruption of the church, which sold indulgences to the rich while preaching hellfire and continence to the poor. Mother Teresa was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction.
Mother Teresa, a sadistic religious fanatic who took pleasure in the suffering of others, became a saint. To be clear, Mother Teresa was no saint, she was instead a moral monster, a sadistic religious fanatic who took pleasure in the suffering of others, and denied appropriate medical care to the sick and dying.
Indeed, Teresa was anything but a saint. The disgusting nun may have been generous with her prayers, but she was miserly with her foundation’s millions when it came to alleviating the suffering of the sick and the poor. The sadistic nun saw beauty in suffering, and refused to medicate those in pain because suffering would bring the afflicted closer to God!
The celebrated nun had 517 missions in 100 countries at the time of her death, and the majority of patients were not cared for properly, with many being left to suffer and die without appropriate medical care or pain medication.
Conditions in the Missionaries of Charity’s hospices were deplorable. Teresa refused to introduce the most basic methods of hygiene, even going so far as to reuse needles without sterilization.
In addition to her medical malpractice, and her perverse and sadistic enjoyment of the suffering of others, Teresa was also guilty of financial mismanagement, as well as entertaining and enjoying friendship with unsavory and immoral world leaders.
Yet despite serious questions about Teresa’s character, motivation and methods, as well as concerns about her suspicious financial dealings and contacts, the Vatican, enabled by a gullible and willing mainstream media, has engaged in a well orchestrated public relations campaign to manufacture a Catholic hero.
Mother Teresa was a friend to Mafiosi and the worst of the rich, taking misappropriated money from the atrocious Duvalier family in Haiti, whose rule she praised in return, and from Charles Keating of the Lincoln Savings and Loan. Where did that money, and all the other donations, go?
Many more people are poor and sick because of the life of Mother Teresa. Even more will be poor and sick if her example is followed. She was a fanatic, a fundamentalist, and a fraud, and a church that officially protects those who violate the innocent has given us another clear sign of where it truly stands on moral and ethical questions.
We call out the profane marriage between tawdry media hype and medieval superstition that is the myth of Mother Teresa, a media superstar who was in the end a fanatic, a sadomasochist, and a fraud.
Miracle is a very profitable hoax. In 2002, the Vatican recognized as a miracle by Mother Teresa the healing of a cancerous tumor in the abdomen of an Indian woman, Monica Besra. But Besra’s doctors and Besra’s husband said that conventional medical treatment had eradicated the tumor. Dr. Ranjan Mustafi, who had treated Besra, said that the cyst was not cancer at all but a cyst caused by tuberculosis. He said, “It was not a miracle. She took medicines for nine months to one year.” According to Besra’s husband, “My wife was cured by the doctors and not by any miracle.”
