About Mother Teresa of Calcutta


<<< Why people love or admire Mother Teresa >>>



I love Mother Teresa because she was very simple and all what she gave was pure Love. I read the books about her life and the circumstances where she was working. Thank you for the beautiful site about Mother Teresa and the prayers



I love Mother Teresa because she so clearly loves you, me, and everyone, loves us in Christ, loves till it hurts. I love her because she gives us a glimpse of heaven on earth in her seemingly boundless love for the poorest and most abandoned in whom she sees only Jesus. I love her because she becomes a transparency through whom we may see God. I love her because she is my mother and the mother of all who need tenderness, care, and love. I love her because she illumines everything and everyone with Christ's Love. I love her because she remembers and reminds us that God is Love. It's nice to have lived in the time of a saint. What a blessing and mercy for us all.


I do admire Mother Theresa very much because she has not avoided the challenges of working for the poorest of the poor. She never thought about how hard it would be or how many people she could not help. She helped those she could help in the way she thought was right for her. She was a great human being. I hope there will be more people like her.



I am fifteen years old and I never had a chance to meet Mother Teresa. I was seven years old when she died and I would have given anything to meet her and to be able to share her kindness and wisdom. I am writing to you, to thank you for making her words possible. Never in my life had I read simpler words that meant so much. They make me cry every time I read them because until now I had found it hard to believe that some one on this Earth could love human beings so much and not care how they looked, where they came from, but hoping and praying that they would get somewhere were they could be happy. I want to thank you once again, and well may God be with you



I fell in love with Mother Teresa when I read several books about her and saw in the media how she helped the children and hungry in India. She tended to the sick, the dying on the street and took them home to tend to them and give them dignity. I'm sure she is a saint in heaven and will meet Pope John Paul II with open arms and a big smile. She was my hero when she was on earth and now that she is in heaven I pray to her everyday to make me a better person. Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul make me believe that giants do truly walk on earth to better humanity. They are both larger than life.

Mother Theresa has been and will be a real love for every human being throughout the world. If only there were any more like her to get rid of the poverty ravaging many countries in the world. God Bless her.
