About this item

Mother Teresa’s canonization has brought fresh attention to her critics who malign her for the politicians she knew, for how she handled the enourmous sums of money she raised, and for the quality of care she offered those she served.

Christopher Hitchens claimed she was “less interested in helping the poor than in using them . . . to fuel the expansion of her fundamentalist Roman Catholic beliefs.”

A group of Canadian academics criticized her in their study for “her rather dubious way of caring for the sick, her questionable political contacts . . . and her overly dogmatic views regarding abortion, contraception, and divorce.”

Now comes Bill Donohue, the indefatigable President of the Catholic League, who is fighting back.

In this carefully researched book, Donohue pulls the curtain back on Mother Teresa’s critics, showing that virtually all of them shared an abiding disdain for Catholicism.

Her critics were militant atheists, Donohue explains, and strongly embraced socialism, viewing Mother Teresa’s work as a deterrent to government-controlled programs.

In these pages, Donahue responds point-by-point to all of her critics claims, and proves that their attacks on her are motivated almost entirely by her conviction that life begins in the womb.

Don’t let Mother Teresa’s critics win. Read this book, and be armed with all the evidence you need to put to rest those cruel myths that are being promoted by those who wish to destroy the legacy of one of the Church’s most admired saints.

Editorial Reviews

"What Donohue has done instead is expose and analyze the fever swamps of ideological bias from which scattered attacks on this holy woman now and then arise. Unmasking Mother Teresa's Critics is a valuable and enlightening book."

"Mother Teresa's detractors have met their match. In this devastating response to persistent critiques, Bill Donohue corrects the record and turns the tables on Mother's attackers. The truth within is a powerful antidote to the lies that have dogged Mother for too long"

How sad that this book had to be written. I'm grateful to Mr. Donohue for exposing these people. I have no doubt St. Teresa would love them and forgive them if they asked. And if they really took the trouble to get to know her, they would better understand Him whom she loves.

Brings clarity
The slanders against Mother Teresa turn out to be baseless, as Bill Donohue demonstrates. Conversely, her virtues are more wonderful than I had known. Well done.
