The Wrath of Mother Teresa?

Mother Teresa gave her personal letters to her archbishop with the dying wish that they be destroyed. So what did he do? He published the letters in a book! Great idea.

Moral of the story: don't trust the Catholic Church with your children or your dying wishes.

On further contemplation, it seems that the priest in charge of the letters is taking a daring gamble. If he really does believe in life after death, and he really does believe that Mother Teresa is saintly and can intercede in earthly affairs, then why the hell would he completely countermand her DYING wish?

Either he's a complete doofus, or he has no faith in the religious mumbo jumbo.
