Nancy Bailey Writes a Letter to Checker Finn

On the Whosoever.org website, Thomas Woodrooffe describes Mother Teresa's actions in Calcutta in 1993. She tended intimately to the sick and dying without asking them their religious beliefs or judging them for any behavior that might have played a part in their illness. In contrast, fundamentalist missionaries were roaming Calcutta's streets at the same time, handing out religious propaganda to the diseased and destitute, warning them they'd face eternal damnation if they'd didn't convert to the One True Way. Keep that difference in mind during the coming weeks, Scorpio. You're in a phase of your astrological cycle when you have tremendous power to heal people, fix misaligned energy, and provide the kind of moral leadership that raises everyone's integrity levels. Be like Mother Teresa, not the fundamentalist missionaries.
"My husband was deported five months ago. He lived here for 36 years, he went to school here. We've been married 28 years, and have six children and seven grandchildren. Now that he is gone we are struggling. I just had my phone cut off. I can't pay my bills and one of my daughters is expecting."
