Lowered Expectations

Everday in this world of ours, children are sexually abused or beaten or starve to death.

People die of horrible diseases or as victims of murderous acts.

Tragic accidents claim life upon life across cities and countries.

Natural disasters take their toll, from the small to the massive.

Well, thank God (feh) we’ve got the soon-to-be saints using their holy superpowers clearing up kidney stones:

This week the Catholic News Service reported that the cause for the canonization of Mother Teresa could “cross its last hurdle” if the Vatican validated a cure reported by a priest in Guwahati, India on Sept. 5, the 10th anniversary of the beloved nun’s death. The cure in question, originally reported by the Asian Catholic news agency UCA News, was described as “the disappearance of a half-inch kidney stone in his lower ureter.”

The mind (of the thinking variety, at least) boggles.
