Mother Teresa (Paperback) (Debra Williams)
about this item
If ever there was a beacon of humility in the badlands of human suffering it was best exemplified in the the selfless Catholic nun, Mother Teresa.
Born to Albanian parents in the Ottoman empire, Mother Teresa traveled to Ireland and joined the Sisters of Loreto order as a teenager with the intention of dedicating herself to missionary work. Claiming to belong to the whole world irrespective of her skin color, she traveled to India and began teaching in school. It was the large heart of Mother Teresa which allowed her to vividly express the empathetic nature of her savior, wherein every poor person she helped could be likened to touching the heart of Jesus.
This faithful service saw the expansion of her Missionaries of Charity congregation across the globe. Today there continues to be volunteers – inspired by her example of the Lord's calling – in the Mission she founded working with orphans, lepers and the dying. She proved to be a woman of undaunted passion and obedience to a higher nature striving against impossible odds. Exemplifying that positive change is an individual responsibility that will eventually benefit the immediate society and world at large.
And thus was revealed a Saint … and a Mother to those most in need.
