Katherina or Katharina?Edit

The International Leprosy Association[1] and the Times Now[2] wrote "Katherina". But, The Telegraph,[3] The Times of India,[4] and the MALC[5] wrote "Katharina". Regards, Ign christian (talk) 13:39, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Mother Theresa of PakistanEdit

 I have had the Radio Four series Last Word on while typing this, and I am sure I heard that the programme said that Ruth Pfau has been referred to as the Mother Theresa of Pakistan  - perhaps this could go in the article. Vorbee (talk) 15:18, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Many apologies - I see that this is mentioned at the end of the article. Vorbee (talk) 15:29, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Unclear sentenceEdit

'During this time, Pfau met several times with a Dutch Christian woman, who was a concentration camp survivor and currently dedicated her life to "preaching love and forgiveness".'

'Currently' is odd, and needs fixing. It doesn't fit with the 'past-ness' of the passage, and it isn't clear whether it atttaches to Dr Pfau or to the Dutch woman.
