Six degrees from Mother Teresa to Darth Vader

So, one of my friends tied Yoda to G.K. Chesterron, really an amazing feat shown as follows:

1. Yoda was friends with Ben "Obi-Wan" Kenobi.
2. Kenobi was played by Alec Guinness.
3. In 1954 Alec Guinness played Father Brown in a movie that is either titled Father Brown or The Detective. (
4. G.K. Chesterton wrote the original Fr. Brown stories.

And to think, I never would have figured this out if I'd actually been sleeping.

Well, in the comments to this it was noted that this was an impressive accomplishement, a challenge was laid down:

That's fine... now connect Darth Vader to Mother Teresa. MWAH HA HA HA!

Well, my friend only felt it could be easily done using the Mystical Body of Christ.

Well, here it is in three degrees:

1. Mother Teresa was in the 1986 documentary about her narrated by Richard Attenborough.
2. Richard Attenborough was in Jurrasic Park with Samuel L Jackson
3. Samuel L Jackson played Mace Windu in Episode's 1, 2 and 3 with Darth Vader.

Well, that wasn't really hard but its funny.....with Yoda back to Chesterton we could do all kinds of interesting things.

Ok, done with the time wasting fun for now.

Under the Mercy,

Alec Guiness playing a priest was instrumental in his conversion to the Catholic faith as he relays in his biography.

That was...interesting. But can you get Mother Teresa to James Earl Jones, the original Vader?

I think you have a great site and a good more men need to hear.

I hope you don't mind, but I've tagged you for a meme.
