She certainly failed her only biological purpose. But kudos to her anyway for making up for it with such kindness. If the religion is unwilling to be the Church Militant, it had better become demonstrative in a manner similar to her.

But this is an odd statement coming from you. usually it's the hippy left that thinks in terms of motives rather than outcomes. Did she actually help seems a legitimate question.
Certainly. She exists as a shining example of a muscular church, willing to stand with principle. Her life seems to be so miserable as to border on martyrdom as far as I'm concerned.

Had she stayed home and self-flagellated while praying for the dying, she would also have had a miserable life and been "selfless". Would she have done more, less or the same amount of good for the poor?
Eh? Do you believe she didn't comfort the sick and dying, even? Tsk tsk.
