Joy is the net by which you capture souls.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them. --Mother Teresa
I used to censor myself...now I wake up and ask myself "Who do I hate today?"Although initially you might think a comparison between Mother Teresa and Helen (no relation to Fighting Irish) Thomas to be crazy, the two female trailblazers had (at least initially) a lot in common. Both come from large religious families of middle Eastern decent, both decried injustice and poverty and forged fabulous careers in their attempt to fight it, and both succeeded in a male work world despite a lack of worldly feminine beauty. But in the end, one crashed and burned, while the other was beatified. So what went right--and wrong?
Tell [the Jews] to get the hell out of Palestine... --Helen Thomas
It is interesting to note how two women from such similar humble beginnings could one end up so bitter and the other one so sweet. Is it because one kept her humility and religion while the other traded it for prejudice and feminism? Is it because Teresa realized you cannot be both against poverty and for abortion while Thomas did not? Yes, but it is best summed up by saying that because Mother Teresa decided to blindly follow Jesus she grew to actually see the Light (and thus to know the Truth) whereas Ms. Thomas, in falling in love with radical feminism, became blinded to the true Light and followed the Prince of Darkness instead. And nowhere was this more evident than their views on Jews and the Middle East.
