In Honor of What Would Have Been Blessed Mother Teresa's 100th Birthday

One way the women in our family are honoring Mother Teresa (born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu) is by wearing blue and white. Today, I am wearing a blue shirt and white shorts.

"...The pure heart can easily see Christ in the hungry, in the naked, in the homeless, in the unwanted, in the unloved, in the leper, in the alcoholic..."

"Naturally our joy will be complete if we remain in His love- for His love is personal, intimate, real, living delicate, faithful love..."

"...God's hunger for human love, for human care, for human touch, for that human joy of loving and touching- that is why He became man: to be able to be loved by you and me."

"There is no need to fear death, because death is nothing more than going home to God. .."

"No one can make a better friend than Jesus- because His love is so humble and so tender..."

 "Faith is the most beautiful gift God can give to a human being- to believe that He IS, and that Christ IS..."

This is such a beautiful post. I especially enjoyed looking at the photos of BMT through the years. She truly was beautiful both inside and out.
