  • It would seem that the reason that Fr. Picot is explaining the problem of Mother Teresa, is so that we will not fall to the same fate - in that we will not lose the faith, as Mother Teresa did. It's not really an expose on Mother Teresa.

    He says that Mother Teresa was born into a Catholic family, with good Catholic parents. She attended the Latin mass. but, she lost her faith in the 1950's, before the New Mass.

    Father goes on the say...."If you don't pay attention to God, if you don't give to God the first place in your life, you take a big risk. You may lose the Faith. One day you may look in your soul and you find darkness only, you look for God, and he's gone, and he doesn't come back. So the Faith isn't automatic. […] "I believe that Jesus Christ is God." It isn't automatic. To believe that Jesus is God is a gift from God. It's a gift from Jesus Christ. And if you take it for granted, you may lose it. So you have to protect your faith. How can you protect your faith? By charity. But true charity; by love of God and love of your neighbor."

    "I believe that Jesus Christ is God." It isn't automatic. To believe that Jesus is God is a gift from God. It's a gift from Jesus Christ." [Actually, it's a gift of the Holy Ghost.] "And if you take it for granted, you may lose it. So you have to protect your faith. How can you protect your faith? By charity. But true charity; by love of God and love of your neighbor."

    According to The Apostle, no one can say "Jesus is Lord" except by the power of the Holy Ghost.
    .
    Maybe instead of saying, "I believe that Jesus Christ is God," it would be more profound to say, "Jesus Christ is God."
    .
    One has to allow Fr. Picot a lot of leeway considering that he's not only delivering a sermon, he's doing an on-the-spot translation from French into English as he speaks. Not an easy task. Fr. Chazal has learned to think in English better over the years with more practice so he's not struggling so much with the instantaneous translation obstacle, but even so, sometimes it creeps back in when he's getting excited or under a lot of pressure.
    .
    This is a very good sermon.    :)
    .
    There are times when you can get right down to the essence of a questionable statement or curious attitude exhibited by someone who would seem to be presenting himself as a Christian, by asking him, "Do you believe that Jesus Christ is God?" You might be surprised by his answer. In my experience, I have yet to hear any such person reply with the affirmative (Yes, I do; or, Yes, Jesus is Lord; or, Jesus is God, etc.), when it is only a lie, as in later one would find out they do not really believe that. Rather, either they cannot answer the question, or else they go off on some obfuscating equivocation that doesn't answer the question. I know a man who worked as a warden in the county detention system, who discovered that any inmate he found behaving in a very creepy way, so as to give the impression that he was either possessed or oppressed by the devil, or was a practitioner of satanic cult worship, when my friend would ask him to say the words, "Jesus Christ is Lord," that the inmates were ALL, to the man, UNABLE to say it. They would sometimes go into convulsions, rolling on the floor and vomiting, but they would be unable to say those four words.

    Yes, I agree that it's good to give Fr. Picot some leeway; it can't be an easy thing for a native French speaker to translate in his mind from French to English when giving a sermon.

    That's an interesting story that you give regarding the inmates whom gave the impression that they were possessed, and they were unable to say that "Jesus Christ is Lord."

    Fr. Picot mentioned in the video that a few days before Mother Teresa died, a priest was called to give her extreme unction, that when he arrived he was shocked by what he saw, and he said that what she needed was not extreme unction, but what she needed was an exorcism. Fr. Picot does not go into details of what that priest saw, but it must have been bad. Fr. Picot also mentioned that Mother Teresa was just a humanitarian, and that she had 300 Missionaries of Charity centers opened. Father doesn't say so, but I doubt that she could have opened that many centers if she had been a devout Catholic. It seems unlikely that the Hindus and Muslims in India would allow that. 

    Of course we must be careful to not fall into the same trap of Mother Teresa. It's not easy to put God first. I'm glad that the Resistance priests are good at reminding us of what's important.

    Does anyone know what the priest's name is, who arrived to give her the last rites? And was it the traditional last rites (Extreme Unction) or was it the usual "anointing of the sick" that everyone gets when they call the local parish Church for a priest?

    I listened again, found the exorcism of Mother Theresa at 15:40 -- by the Bishop of Bombay, who had come to give Extreme Unction and was shocked to find that what she needed was to be exorcised because she gave signs of being possessed.
    .
    The second time, it's easier to pick up on certain words that I had missed the first time not having been used to Fr.'s accent yet. Newchurch has two great so-called saints: Mother Theresa and John Paul II. 
    (It seems to me the latter learned from the former -- M.T. was the pioneer in gathering with non-Catholics to pray, without praying with non-Catholics, to avoid accusations of communicatio in sacris.)
    .
    Modernism brings people to hell. You can see that in Mother Theresa 19:55
    .
    She lost her faith completely in the 1950s -- complete shipwreck of faith! And she had been going to the Latin Mass, THIS ONE (Fr. turns to indicate the altar), from 1913 to 1969. So what about us? 23:00
    .
    For the 25th anniversary of the founding of her sisters of Charity, she held a week-long celebration, first day Catholic Church, second day, ceremonies with priest and Hindus in Hindu temple, third day, Buddhist temple, and so on, for a week. She went to Mosques and all the false religions. Her greatest offense against the Faith of Catholics was that she refused to baptize dying babies who were children of non-Catholics. (Any child that dies without baptism cannot go to heaven, but one that dies with baptism goes straight to heaven; this is Catholic doctrine, but M.T. did not adhere to this doctrine.) She taught her nuns in the Missionaries of Charity NOT to baptize dying babies of non-Catholic families, and she explained in her book that she was not there to convert anyone, but to help Catholics to be better Catholics, Hindus to be better Hindus, Buddhists to be better Buddhists and Mohammedans to be better Moslems. 
    .
    (Not a typo: I did not mean to write "muslims," I wrote, Moslems and Mohammedans)
    .
    He did not touch on this detail, but I read it in a reliable source, which said Mother Theresa carried Buddhist water in one bottle and Holy Water in another, which she would offer to suffering people. She gave everyone a choice, which one to receive, without explaining any difference between them. You could choose either one, without hearing anything about it. If you chose Holy Water, well, you'd get Holy Water and no words associated with it. If you chose Buddhist water, you'd get Buddhist water and again, nothing to say about it. I never did hear what would happen if someone were to ask a question about the water.
