Pope Francis has proclaimed Mother Teresa of Calcutta a Saint.

Saint Teresa, 1986.

In addition to fighting the poverty and suffering of millions she is credited with directly curing diseases. While people of The Church rejoice, others are (were rather) not so happy:

Part time atheist and full time drunk Christopher Hitchens once called her “Hell’s Angel”. I suppose he could verify she is not there. This reminds me of my single run-in with Hitchens but I’ll save that for another day.

Blessed was and is Mother Teresa, Saint Teresa.
