Don't mess with Mother Teresa.That's the word to those putting on a film series on religious fundamentalism, which is being sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University.One of the movies scheduled to be shown next week at the Baltimore Museum of Art has triggered an angry reaction among local Roman Catholics. It's an attack on the diminutive 85-year-old Albanian nun who has spent the last 45 years tending the poor and dying in the squalor of Calcutta. Already people are lining up to defend Mother Teresa, who just visited Baltimore last week to watch 35 members of her order renew their vows at the Basilica of the Assumption.

Mother Teresa, the 4-foot-10 champion of the poor, visited Baltimore yesterday, offering blessings to the faithful and comfort to the sick.Surrounded by dozens of nuns and about 1,000 admirers, the 85-year-old missionary participated in a Mass at the Basilica of the Assumption, the nation's oldest Roman Catholic cathedral. Looking frail and walking gingerly, she climbed a platform that was placed on the altar especially for her and urged the congregation to strive for compassion and family unity.

Washington. -- Hillary Rodham Clinton committed a gracious and pro-life act last week when she appeared with Mother Teresa at the dedication of a Washington home for unwed mothers and their babies awaiting adoption.It was gracious because at last year's National Prayer Breakfast, Mrs. Clinton and the president, with an audience of 3,000, listened to a speech by Mother Teresa about the evils of abortion. The pro-choice Mrs. Clinton could have treated the incident as an affront and stiffed the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Pyrrhic Victories for Economic DevelopmentIn your editorial of May 23, you correctly pointed out that "planning" should come first in relating to the Wal-Mart and Food Lion building projects on Liberty Road.However, you repeat the absolutely false company and politician propaganda that Wal-Mart will generate 160 new jobs and $110,000 in tax revenues. The so-called "new" jobs will be at the expense of other, smaller businesses which will be forced to close. The taxes paid by Wal-Mart will similarly be a replacement for taxes lost due to business closings.

Walking to evening Mass on the Upper East Side of New York in the summer of 1992, Eileen Egan was knocked to the ground from behind by a would-be purse-snatcher. Her head was badly gashed. Her hip and seven ribs were broken. She was 80.If she had not been a prolific Roman Catholic author and an influential exponent of what she and others call "Gospel non-violence," that mugging might have passed with little notice.But because of who she is, and because of her repeatedly unsuccessful attempts to help her attacker after his arrest, the incident and its aftermath received wide publicity.

I have been reading the February issue of Vanity Fair wherein Christopher Hitchens, a British subject, describes Mother Teresa ''the ghoul of Calcutta.'' Mr. Hitchens' essay -- ''Mother Teresa and Me'' -- is a justification of a television expose that he wrote and presented last year on Britain's Channel Four.Mr. Hitchens belongs among that generation of British journalists and editors -- amoral aliens -- who have invaded New York and Washington. These expats are like characters from a minor Evelyn Waugh novel; they are craven and coarse and contemptuous of the colonials.
