Happy Feast Day of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta!




Today marks the feast day of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta - a beautiful servant of God who is one of our most celebrated mothers.

In her own words:

“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.”

"God still loves the world and He sends you and me to be His love and His compassion to the poor.”
