Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble – April 5, 2016 – Aleteia
Mostly I’m adding this here so I can save it for later. Whenever I hear someone criticize Bl. Teresa of Calcutta (who I still call Mother Teresa in my head) I have this habit of getting all emotional and forgetting how to share the truth about her life.
When one sees a person doing good things because he or she believes in God it is reasonable to attribute that person’s good works to those beliefs (even if one happens to disagree with that belief).
What is unreasonable is to assume that a person doing good works has a dark heart full of violence and self-interest simply because one’s own angry heart cannot begin to understand the Gospel, even theoretically.
Great thoughts to help keep my head clear!
