Mother Teresa's miracles

#1  Postby lpetrich » May 19, 2019 6:27 pm

Mother Teresa is an Officially Recognized Saint in the Catholic Church, complete with having worked two Officially Recognized Miracles. But what sort of miracles?
  • Did MT ever speak in several languages without having to learn them?
  • Did MT ever calm any storms?
  • Did MT ever miraculously fill an empty oil can with oil or recharge a dead battery?
  • Did MT ever miraculously desalinate seawater?
  • Did MT ever point out any monster-containing trees?
  • Did MT ever get a lost crucifix returned to her by a crab?
  • Did MT ever cure anyone's blindness?
  • Did MT ever strike blind anyone who stole from her?
  • Did MT ever cause an earthquake in a town whose citizens said nasty things about her?
  • Did MT ever miraculously create any big piles of bread and fish?
  • Did MT ever raise anyone from the dead?
  • Did MT ever cure anyone with magical spit therapy?
  • Did MT ever walk on water?
  • Did MT ever turn water into wine?
  • Did MT ever zap some Missionaries of Charity employee who kept too much for herself?
  • Did MT ever turn some sticks into snakes?
  • Did MT ever sic a pack of stray dogs on some kids who teased her about being a wrinkled old hag?
  • Did MT ever have a competition with some Hindu priests about whose god was better at making a rain of fire from on high?
I have a challenge for all of you. Can you recognize the originals of any of these miracles?

Hint: some of the originals are from the Bible, and some were allegedly worked by St. Genevieve (419/422 - 502/512 CE) and St. Francis Xavier (1506 - 1552 CE).

I will concede that she had worked some miracles:
  • "Curing" the stomach cancer of Monica Besra, someone who was being medically treated for it.
  • Creating an image of herself as a great humanitarian.
  • An inverse bread-and-fish miracle: the disappearance of large amounts of money from the bank accounts of the Missionaries of Charity, her order of nuns.

Why the weird capitalization in your first sentence.
Other than that, there's no evidence whatsoever that any saint ever performed even a single miracle.
On the topic of sadist Theresa however:

the first miracle is that this lady was considered as a humanitarian is the most flabbergasting... the converted people literally at deaths door and let them die in squalor
the second is that such an evil hag was even considered for venerable status, let along saint hood, I wonder what kind of people short of 3 cans to a sixpack can even pray to her to intercede with the Higher Powers...

Not only sainthood, but a nobel peace prize as well.

At first glance, I thought the thread title said, "Mother Teresa's testicles".

She believed in redemption through suffering which is a noble virtue
as long as you only apply it to yourself and do not expect it of others

Her biggest miracle was bamboozling the entire world into financially supporting her torture chambers. Fucking miserable old cunt.

Along with presenting herself as a great humanitarian and her inverse loaves-and-fishes miracles on her nun-order finances. But I doubt that the Vatican would have accepted these miracles as sainthood miracles.

Well, I guess it does, or she would not be a saint already.

She didn't really do that much self-promotion. The RCC promoted an image of her as an ideal follower of Christ to be admired and excellent role model to all.
