Doubting ThomasTheresa

Mother Teresa is being fast tracked on her way to sainthood and anything said against her is almost unthinkable.Therefore,it is shocking to hear that she had serious doubts about her faith to the point where she stopped praying and feared being labelled as a hypocrite.According to CBS News a collection of her letters written to superiors, friends and confessors have been compiled and are to be released in the form of a book. These reveal a side of her that will shock the world about the Nobel Peace Prize recipient and her inner struggle with her faith.

"Where is my faith?" she wrote. "Even deep down… there is nothing but emptiness and darkness... If there be God — please forgive me."
"What do I labor for?" she asked in one letter. "If there be no God, there can be no soul. If there be no soul then, Jesus, You also are not true."

This just goes to show that even the so called super human messengers of God have their own inner doubts.
