    She was a great human being.

    The one thing I definitely agree with Christianity and the Catholic church is that everyone is a sinner. But it's hard to argue with the fact that MT help the diseased more than she hurt them... a LOT more.

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

      She was human.

      She had a truly staggering amount of money at her disposal, which she utterly failed to use for the purpose for which she ostensibly collected it.

      Many thousands of people she claimed to want to help died painful deaths, because she thought, and her organization acted on those thoughts, that suffering was noble and Christlike.  

      At her own end, she availed herself of every benefit money and technology could buy to alleviate her own suffering.  

      I don't know what measures you use to determine "greatness", but these cannot be among them.
