Saint Teresa of Calcutta

September 4, 2016 (248/366)

"Not all of us can do great things. 
But we can do small things with great love.” 
~ Blessed Saint Teresa of Calcutta

"Today, I pass on this emblematic figure of womanhood and of consecrated life to the whole world of volunteers. May she be your model of holiness. We might have some difficulty in calling her "Saint Teresa." With great spontaneity, I think we'll continue to call her, 'Mother Teresa.' Let us carry her smile in our hearts and give that smile to those we meet along our journey, especially those who suffer. In this way, we'll open up so many horizons of joy and hope for our many brothers and sisters who are discouraged and in need of understanding and tenderness." ~ Pope Francis I
