Dr Gëzim Alpion, Lecturer in Sociology in the Political Science and International Studies, was invited to give a lecture at Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia, on Mother Teresa’s charisma and spiritual aridity on 21 November 2001. This is one of several worldwide invitations Dr Alpion has received recently to give public lectures and talks on his controversial work in progress ‘Can Humans Know God? Mother Teresa Conundrum’, which is expected to be published in 2013.
During his stay in Melbourne Dr Alpion was invited by the Australian Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) Radio for a studio interview on 20 November 2011.
The focus of Dr Alpion’s eighteen-minute interview with the SBS anchorman Sani Kajtazi was on Mother Teresa’s formative years in Skopje (1910-1928), her efforts to replace her biological father with a divine father from an early age, the reasons behind the efforts of the Albanians and Macedonians Slavs to appropriate her, her care for ‘human debris’, the unique nature of her dark night of the soul, and her prospects for sainthood.
