Mother Teresa (1910-1997) She ministered to those who no one else was willing to reach out to. The Lepers, the destitute, the babies that had been aborted late in pregnancy. She depended on God and listened to him. She stood up for her faith, and went out from the convent. She followed God until the day she died. I want to be this kind of woman.
Mother Teresa -Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Catholic order of nuns dedicated to helping the poor. Begun in Calcutta, India, the Missionaries of Charity grew to help the poor, the dying, orphans, lepers, and AIDS sufferers in over a hundred countries. Mother Teresa's selfless effort to help those in need has caused many to regard her as a model humanitarian.

Let us beg from Our Lady to make our hears "meek and humble" like her Son's was. We learn humility through accepting humiliations cheerfully. Do not let a chance pass you by. It is so easy to be proud, harsh, moody and selfish but we have been created for better things. Why stoop down to things that will spoil the beauty of our hearts? - Mother Teresa
