It is great.The great works and life of Mother Theresa is displayed in the Mother express Train, so that the present generation can understand the importance of love and service for the poor and the needy brothers and sisters instead of hatred and antipathy. It is sure that only the God fearing man or woman can inspire the heart of others. Mother Theresa who dedicated her life for the poor is still lives in the life of so many people.She was and is an inspiring lady to all . She is the light of the world.That is the legacy of the life of Mother Theresa.

Really Mother Teresa was a real mother to all. When she died I was 8 years old, I saw people crying for her here in West Bengal. She was really the lady of the 20th century.
Sister Prema recalled Blessed Teresa's 1982 visit to Lebanon during the war.
She said: "The centenary celebration of the birthday of our Mother, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, is an outburst of love and affection from the hearts of her children all over the world. You, her beloved children in Lebanon and the Middle East, have gathered to express that love and affection in a most appropriate way by offering thanks to God in a Holy Mass. The statue of Mother Teresa is placed where the first convent was established. It will remind all of the wonderful way God showed his love for his children during the Lebanese war."
"Placing a statue of Mother Teresa in Lebanon and the Middle East," Sister Prema added, "is an outburst of love…"
Tele Lumiere general secretary, Antoine Saad, delivered a closing speech in the name of the TV station. He spoke of Mother Teresa as "the woman following the footsteps of the preachers and raising loudly the voice of the suffering people, the brave and strong woman."
Finally, the Missionaries of Charity decorated the statue of their founder with flowers and read with the crowds her Prayer of Humility. Then, the procession returned to the church and Mother Teresa’ sisters celebrated with the crowds.
