Several weeks ago on a Journey Home interview, a protestant minister, who converted to the Catholic faith, told a story about Mother Theresa. The story was that when in Rome, Mother Theresa streatched out her hand and asked an Italian industrialist for a donation. The industrialist spit in Mother Theresa's hand. Can you date and verify this events. I have repeated this story often and many say that it is not true. Can you help me out. Sincerely, Gordon Stuart

Sorry, but I cannot help you there. But if the soldiers spit upon and beat Christ, I suppose human being could insult Mother Theresa. Hatred of the holy is very real.
