Remembering Mother Theresa !!!!
She was born in August 26th, 1910 and died on September 5th, 1997. She was fascinated with charity work from the early age and she always had the plan of joining it one day. She served in Loreto convent school in Entally, eastern Calcutta for 20 years and then appointed as a principal.
Thereafter she engaged her whole life in helping the poor and needy people. Her message got beyond our usual understanding of the poverty. She says that we all are poor and she finds Christ in the poor!! She also says that ‘ If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” She left the convent and involved herself in adopting the unloved and unwanted people.
She founded Missionaries of Charity which is a Roman Catholic religious congregation with the group of 6 to 10 women from the same school she worked for 20 years and now this Charity has around 4,500 sisters and was active in 133 countries. This congregation provide homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, soup kitchens, tuberculosis; also manages mobile clinics, counseling programs, orphanages and schools.
She taught me to love and care people with a selfless heart and without expecting anything from them in reverse. If someone cheats on you or take the advantage of your kind heart, I don’t recommend anyone to stop trusting people and help them. Mother Teresa was truly a mother for so many people and I believe still she is. She is no more now but whatever she did when she was alive it’s still helping the poor among poor people. One doesn’t necessarily help Orphans or people dying of HIV etc., but please help when someone asks you for any help if you can or at least try!!
I read and heard few controversies about Mother Teresa but I request everyone to take the positive things in consideration and try to learn from the good work everyone has done. It is really easy judging someone and criticizing someone and few people make time to do only such things. So I suggest instead of making time to criticize people it’s better to try to at least 0.00001 % in what people like Mother Teresa did.
