Was Mother Teresa not so saintly after all? Researchers spark controversy by claiming her care of the sick was 'dubious' and handling of cash 'suspicious'

Was Mother Teresa not so saintly after all? Researchers spark controversy by claiming her care of the sick was 'dubious' and handling of cash 'suspicious' | RS | Scoop.it
Born Agnes Gonxha in Albania, she founded the Missionaries of Charity and spent much of her life in Calcutta, caring for the sick and poor. But critics have questioned how much of the image is justified.
AMead's insight:

I found this article very interesting because it is about how some people believe that Mother Teresa was not as people thought and wonder how much her image was justified. They say that the missions she opened were unclean, had a shortage of care and no painkillers. These are a few examples that are stated in the article. This is good as it relates to the work we did on Mother Teresa but we studied her in a good way so it was interesting to see what other people think of her.

UAE's First Female Priest Backs Women Bishops

UAE's First Female Priest Backs Women Bishops | RS | Scoop.it
The Reverend Jo Henderson, one of the few female priests in the Middle East, says "women have an awful lot to give the church".
AMead's insight:

This document is about a lady who was a Priest and believs that women should have the right to be Bishops as they have a lot to offer in a church. She belives that it is natural progression. This is useful as it relates to the 'Pope and Bishops in a Catholic church' section in our books.

The stabbing of a 90-year-old monk would be extraordinary at any time. But Brother Roger, the founder of Taize who was killed on Tuesday, leaves a legacy which is felt in churches all over the world.
AMead's insight:

This article is about a man, the founder of Taize, who was stabbed. However the article explains how Taize has grown and become a very popular place, excpecially for young people to go and be with the monks to focus and think. It states how Taize has changed the church forever and is getting better and better. This relates to the topic in the book and how christians show their love to God.
