Mother Theresa


If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Mother Theresa


Throughout the years, I have always been drawn to reading articles and books about Mother Theresa. I had hoped to see her in person someday, but never had the opportunity before she passed away in 1997.
Our church last night had a presentation of her work in Calcutta and the Missionaries of Charity that served the poorest of the poor. I was moved to tears as I listened to Linda Schaefer described her experience in India. She was the last professional photojournalist granted complete access to Mother Theresa and her work throughout India. She talked of working side by side with her and volunteering her time and energy before Mother Theresa even allowed her to take any pictures.
It is always amazing to me to hear about Mother Theresa and the people that could never say "no" to her. It truly was an amazing life.

"I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper's wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?"  Mother Theresa 1974.  She was truly a inspiring woman.  I love reading stories about her.
