Mother Teresa

I was reading an article about Mother Teresa today.. and one small paragraph caught my eye:

She was a Catholic fundamentalist who opposed the Vatican Council reforms of the 1960s, and tried to intervene in an Irish referendum on abortion. The Church accepted her only because she attracted new believers.

I’m sure that she was being obedient to God no matter what the “rules” were. She was fighting for something.*

But, I think the greatest thing about this passage is that they liked her too much because of it. Haha! I think it’s sometimes the same for the “Salvos” that you hear about that are a little “wacky” or “out-there”. They’re fighting for things that matter, and saying things or doing things here and there, that maybe haven’t been approved by the PR department… But, generally those are the ones who are in Corps and Out-posts who are getting people saved, seeing souls won for the Kingdom. Hallelujah!

Bring it on LORD! šŸ˜€

One thought on “Mother Teresa

  1. Very interesting post…I am a big fan of Mother Teresa. Have you read her book, “In My Own Words”? It is a book of her quotes. It’s good.

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
