Sorry, Christopher Hitchens

Okay so I know Christopher Hitchens made a fairly compelling case against Mother Teresa, but I really do like this anecdote about her and I feel the same:

Once, on New Year’s Eve, a reporter asked Mother (now Saint) Teresa of Calcutta, “If you could change one thing in the world this New Year, what would it be?” Her reply: “myself.”

Amen, Teresa, Amen.  Gmar chatima tova, everyone!

Amended for absence of any doubt: If I could change anything about the world this year it would be myself, NOT Mother/Saint Teresa.
