MARK MICHAEL ZIMA, author of "Mother Teresa: The Case For the Cause: Is Mother Teresa of Calcuta a Saint?" , will address his "OPEN LETTER TO POPE BENEDICT XVI REGARDING THE CAUSE FOR CANONIZATION OF MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA."
Although Mark Michael Zima is a Traditionalist Catholic in good standing, his controversial views regarding Mother Teresa of Calcutta, a beloved, modern-day hero of countless millions globally spanning denominations and world religions, surely puts him at odds with the vast majority of professing Catholics worldwide. He is a former religious brother of two missionary communities: the Brothers of Our Lady of Reconciliation and the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. He has devoted much of his life to theological and philosophical studies as well as the evangelism of Catholicism. He has studied at the Dietrich von Hildebrand Institute in Gradone, Italy. He has also has a comprehensive education in other branches of Christian theology. He has taught Sacred Scripture, as well as RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) and has been a Catholic youth director at a parish in Oregon. He has been associated with many different Catholic organizations. He has worked to found Catholic monasteries with Catholic priests.
Mr. Zima has written to Cardinal Ratzinger before he became Pope Benedict XVI (An Open Letter and Request to Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger), and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, to address the theological problems in the Church. He has met and dialogued with bishops of the western and eastern rites. Today we will discuss Mr. Zima's recent open letter to Pope Benedict XVI calling into question Mother Teresa's eligibility for Canonization.
