After my two patron saints I have a few very special holy people who I like to pray and ask intercession from. One of them is Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
Mother Teresa is a very inspiring person for me, a role model. I love it how she went to India and looked after little babies and children without homes. I also love her quotes (and she has lots I can tell you)
|This is actually the very picture I have|
It shows her holding a child lovingly, looking like a very happy person.
No, she isn't actually a saint (yet) she's a blessed. She needs to do another miracle before she can be canonized as a saint.
I actually know a priest who saw Mother Teresa which is just totally awesome for me. :)
Mother Teresa had her doubts of faith just as I have as well sometimes. She just kept on praying no matter these doubts and that is the key.
she helped a lot of poor people in India and her love of children especially the abandoned was sort of her way of imitating Jesus "But Jesus said to them: Suffer the little children, and forbid them not to come to me: for the kingdom of heaven is for such." She tried to imitate Jesus in his love for children. She was a great woman and one of my principle role models.
"There are many people who can do big things, but there are very few people who will do the small things." ~ 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." ~ Mother Teresa
"Abortion is murder in the womb...A child is a gift of God. If you do not want him, give him to me."~
Mother Teresa. (Mother Teresa and I have a lot in common on the subject of abortion.)
"Humility is the mother of all virtues; purity, charity and obedience. It is in being humble that our love becomes real, devoted and ardent. If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are. If you are blamed you will not be discouraged. If they call you a saint you will not put yourself on a pedestal." ~ Mother Teresa.
