I agree that many people found that she offered a better death. I also agree her cause was to spread God’s love. I can see why in the eyes of Catholicism she was a saint, and it’s always easier to throw stones at someone who is in the arena. My main point is that beliefs have real-world consequences. I believe her beliefs were flawed and therefore they led to some good (helping the poor die with love), but also some bad (overvaluing the beauty of death, poverty, and suffering).
