Albania wants Mother Teresa back

From CNN:: Albania to India: Give us Mother Teresa http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/10/17/albania.mother.teresa/index.html?iphoneemail

OK, this is just a bit too much. Albania wants the remains of Mother Teresa returned. She's buried in Calcutta now.

They want the body because they figure she'll be sainted by her 100th birthday, which is coming up soon, and there'll be some sort of celebration.

India says no.

More likely some notion of money, think tourist bucks, is involved, and this will surely motivate all sorts of moonlight requisitions.

In time, we could have relics of Mother Teresa scattered all over the world, much as St. John is now. Mark Twain would be so proud.
