Lift Up Your Day With Mother Teresa

Lift Up Your Day With Mother Teresa

It is said that just looking at Mother Teresa brings a person closer to a state of Grace. How much better if the world could look at a picture of her rather than the faces of murderers so often plastered over the news.

Lift up your day by gazing at a picture of this remarkable woman, who was a living saint, and read some of her words of wisdom, such as, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin:”

See her picture and read her words here.

She was human, but she tried more than most to do good.

This woman took a vow of poverty and cared for the forgotten, abandoned sick people that no-one wanted. She was NOT wealthy. Some of these comments show great ignorance, judgement and are un-called for. She lived in poverty. She is a Saint. What have you done lately Bente S?

i read her autobiography.. the late Mother Teresa came from a humble background. she has flaws like the lot of us but we give credit for her enduring work and sense of compassion that the world lacks among its leaders. the idealism and the 'painted label' of sainthood was not her goal but teaching us to understand we are vulnerable, fragile human beings in different lives. our differences unite us.

She does not inspire me at all because I know too much the truth and how she thought suffering is good and let people hurt and die. She did not open homeless house in New York City, they require elevator but she did not want. Stupid since many homeless people need the wheel chair.

How odd to see another Care2 member with the same initials as myself! I heartily agree with all she has said!
