Eugenio Pacelli

September 24, 1999

(Photograph) - Along with Eugenio Pacelli (above), other controversial figures under consideration for sainthood by the Vatican include Mother Teresa (left) and the Capuchin monk Padre Pio. Hostile evidence from academics and writers includes accusations that Mother Teresa accepted donations from such unsavoury people as the late Robert Maxwell and Baby Doc Duvalier, and that Padre Pio inflicted stigmata on himself and had a weakness for young women.
