“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.” This is how Mother Teresa, foundress of the Missionaries of Charity, described herself. Her life joyfully demonstrated the dignity of life, the value of little acts, and the impact of friendship with Jesus.
