In a discussion with a Protestant friend, one of his criticisms went along this line: how can the Catholic Church declare Mother Teresa a saint? she did not perform any healing miracle while alive. I wonder if any of you have heard this argument before and what do you think of it?
I told him first of all I do not know enough about Mother Teresa to know if she performed a healing miracle or not while alive but I know what Scripture tells us (because when talking to Protestants they only wanna hear about Scripture):
‘In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’’ Acts 20:35
So I think Mother Teresa wholly embodied this passage in her life and work and the Church fully recognized this.
