A fraudster, a sanctimonious impostor, and a criminal called "Mother Teresa" is going to be "made" a "saint" next September by "Roman Catholic Church", also known as the "Vatican".
Nothing surprising, given the fact that "Roman Catholic Church" is the world's oldest surviving criminal syndicate, ethnocidal outfit, and the most bloody-minded colonial power the world has ever known .
The Roman Catholic Church's catalogue of "saints" has long figured far worse criminals and perverts.
This fraud and criminal woman was personally complicit in protecting one of the worst sexual predators among the thousands of Catholic "fathers", according to an investigation by SF Weekly, a US-based publication.

Tainted Saint: Mother Teresa Defended Pedophile Priest
The SF Weekly, By Peter Jamison, 11 Jan 2012
The death of journalist and polemicist Christopher Hitchens last month
gave those familiar with his work a chance to revisit one of his more
controversial subjects: the Albanian nun Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, better
known to the world as Mother Teresa. In his 1997 book, The Missionary
Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice, Hitchens argued that
the "Saint of Calcutta," who founded and headed the international
Missionaries of Charity order, enjoyed undeserved esteem.
Despite her humanitarian reputation and 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, Mother
Teresa had set up a worldwide system of "homes for the dying" that
routinely failed to provide adequate care to patients, Hitchens argued
— an appraisal shared by The Lancet, a respected medical journal.
Mother Teresa also associated with, and took large sums of money from,
disreputable figures such as American savings-and-loan swindler
Charles Keating and the dictatorial Duvalier family of Haiti.
Notwithstanding these black marks on an otherwise sterling reputation,
Mother Teresa — who died in 1997 and is now on the fast track to a
formal proclamation of sainthood by the Vatican — was never known to
have been touched by the scandal that would rock the Roman Catholic
Church in the decade after her death: the systematic protection of
child-molesting priests by church officials.
Yet documents obtained by SF Weekly suggest that Mother Teresa knew
one of her favorite priests was removed from ministry for sexually
abusing a Bay Area boy in 1993, and that she nevertheless urged his
bosses to return him to work as soon as possible. The priest resumed
active ministry, as well as his predatory habits. Eight additional
complaints were lodged against him in the coming years by various
families, leading to his eventual arrest on sex-abuse charges in 2005.
The priest was Donald McGuire, a former Jesuit who has been convicted
of molesting boys in federal and state courts and is serving a 25-year
federal prison sentence. McGuire, now 81 years old, taught at the
University of San Francisco in the late 1970s, and held frequent
spiritual retreats for families in San Francisco and Walnut Creek
throughout the 1980s and 1990s. He also ministered extensively to the
Missionaries of Charity during that time.
In a 1994 letter to McGuire's Jesuit superior in Chicago, it appears
that Mother Teresa acknowledged she had learned of the "sad events
which took [McGuire] from his priestly ministry these past seven
months," and that McGuire "admitted imprudence in his behavior," but
she wished to see him put back on the job. The letter was written
after McGuire had been sent to a psychiatric hospital following an
abuse complaint to the Jesuits by a family in Walnut Creek.
"I understand how grave is the scandal touching the priesthood in the
U.S.A. and how careful we must be to guard the purity and reputation
of that priesthood," the letter states. "I must say, however, that I
have confidence and trust in Fr. McGuire and wish to see his vital
ministry resume as soon as possible."
The one-page letter comes from thousands of pages of church records
that have been shared with plaintiffs' attorneys in ongoing litigation
against the Jesuits involving McGuire. (The documents were also shared
with prosecutors who worked on his criminal cases.) It is printed on
Missionaries of Charity letterhead but is unsigned, and thus cannot be
verified absolutely as having been written by Mother Teresa. Officials
in the Missionaries of Charity and the Jesuits did not respond to
requests for comment on its provenance......

Mother Teresa Humanitarian Image A 'Myth,' New Study Says
The Huffington Post, By Ron Dicker, 03 April 2013
A new study by Canadian academics says Mother Teresa was a product of
hype who housed the poor and sick in shoddy conditions, despite her
access to a fortune.
The Times of India, reporting on the controversial essay, wrote that
the authors asserted Mother Teresa saw beauty in the downtrodden's
suffering and was far more willing to pray for them than provide
practical medical care. Meanwhile, researchers say, the Vatican
engaged in a PR ploy as it threw aside concerns about her suspicious
financial dealings and contacts to forgo the five-year waiting period
to beatify her.
One of the researchers, Serge Larivee of the University of Montreal's
department of psychoeducation, told the school's website, “Given the
parsimonious management of Mother Teresa's works, one may ask where
the millions of dollars for the poorest of the poor have gone?”
The research paper claims that the celebrated nun had 517 missions in
100 countries at the time of her death, but that the majority of
patients were not cared for properly and many were left to die,
according to the university website. In addition, the Vatican is said
to have ignored a doctor's assertions when it concluded that a Mother
Teresa miracle healed a woman who had tuberculosis and an ovarian
Researchers Carole Senechal of the University of Ottawa and Larivee
and Genevieve Chenard from the University of Montreal came to their
conclusions by examining 96 percent of the originally researched,
published works about Teresa, according to the U of M website. Their
findings are to be published in French-language journal Studies in
