The way of a saint …

‘Mother Teresa: No Greater Love’: a Review. (Hat tip. Dave Lull.)

Not only was she unafraid of violence and enmity, but she was also not frightened by poverty, illness, or death – not by their sights or stench. To watch Mother Teresa: No Greater Love is to grasp why she had dark nights of the soul. She labored for half a century and, though she saved and enlightened many lives, she did not end poverty or indifference, giving us a perfect application of Matthew’s report of Christ’s words: “Why do you trouble the woman? She has performed a good service for me. For you always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.”
