Catholic League president William Donohue released the following comment today regarding the death of Mother Teresa:
In an age when superlatives are used with abandon to describe the contributions of public figures, it is testimony to Mother Teresa’s greatness that no sane person would deny her the status as the world’s most giving human being. She was a model for men and women, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. There was no human life, born or unborn, that she was not willing to sacrifice for and there was no human condition so debasedthat she did not seek to remedy. But perhaps most of all she will be remembered as someone who never sought the honor she so sincerely earned.
