PSA on soon-to-be St. Teresa of Calcutta

I’m quite happy that Mother Teresa will soon be St. Teresa of Calcutta, and not even fauxtations will tarnish that. But, out of respect for her, please don’t attribute to her things it’s known she didn’t say.

“How do I know if she didn’t say something?” I hear you cry. One way is to see if it shows up on the awkwardly (but descriptively) titled page Quotes falsely attributed to Mother Teresa and significantly paraphrased versions or personal interpretations of statements that are not her authentic words.

 

Of particular note, the “Anyway prayer” is not hers. She liked it but did not write it.
