MOTHER TERESA

image by christine renney

Lady Diana – I read somewhere that you were once asked in an interview if you would have done what you have done in your life – the charity work and the good deeds, if you would still have done it if you did not believe in God – and you said no.  Is that true? 

Mother Teresa – I don’t understand.  Are you asking me if I was once asked that and, if so, how I answered or are you re-asking the question? 

Lady D – So you admit that you were once asked it? 

Mother T – No 

Lady D – But you just asked if I was re-asking it? 

Mother T – Did I?  Well, that was just a slip of the tongue 

Lady D – But is it true? 

Mother T – Are you asking if God exists? 

Lady D – No, I am asking you to imagine that he doesn’t 

Mother T – To pretend you mean? 

Lady D – Yes 

Mother T – Why? 

Lady D – In order to answer the question 

Mother T – I can’t do that 

Lady D – I understand 

Mother T – You do? 

Lady D – Yes, let us just forget this conversation then 

Mother T – To put it out of our minds completely, you mean? 

Lady D – Yes 

Mother T – Pretend that it did not happen? 

Lady D – Yes, can you do that? 

Mother T – Yes, of course I can
