  1. Terrific! I gave this post a 5 star rating!

    I recently came across the word in a quote by Mother Teresa, from her book Simple Path. I was unfamiliar with the word calumniate, so I had to look it up. Here is that quote:

    “Deliver me, O Jesus, From the desire of being loved, From the desire of being extolled, From the desire of being honored, From the desire of being praised, From the desire of being preferred, From the desire of being consulted, From the desire of being approved, From the desire of being popular, From the fear of being humiliated, From the fear of being despised, From the fear of suffering rebukes, From the fear of being calumniated, From the fear of being forgotten, From the fear of being wronged, From the fear of being ridiculed, From the fear of being suspected.”
    ― Mother Teresa, Simple Path

    (I copied that quote from a page on GoodReads.)

    I don’t recall ever seeing this word, but I’m going to use it. I love to sound pretentious. 🙂
