September 10, 2012 – Sweet Lady

Regardless of your Church/Religious/Spiritual preference, or lack there of, you have to admit that the below mentioned lady is really something else.

On this day in 1946 – While riding a train to Darjeeling, Sister Teresa Bojaxhiu of the Loreto Sisters‘ Convent claimed to have heard the call of God, directing her “to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them”. She would become known as Mother Teresa.

“By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.”

For over 45 years, she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity‘s expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries. Her beatification by Pope John Paul II following her death gave her the title “Blessed Teresa of Calcutta“.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Don’t look for big things, just do small things with great love….The smaller the thing, the greater must be our love.

Be the living expression of God’s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.
