Heroes: Mother Teresa
A humble servant that became a household name.
Ministering to the poor and dying, she had a heart to feel their needs, eyes to see their suffering.
She comforted when others threw away.
In her own words:
"At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made or how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless and you took me in.’
Hungry not only for bread-but hungry for love.
Naked not only for clothing-but naked of human dignity and respect.
Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks-but homeless because of rejection.
This is Christ in distressing disguise."
One small woman in drab clothing that changed the world.
Love in human form.
Mother Teresa was surrounded by angels.
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all." Mark 9:35
