A Brief Recap of St. Teresa of Calcutta's Canonization



I have been looking for something to feature on the blog about the canonization of Mother Teresa; now known as St. Teresa of Calcutta. The above video lasts just 60 seconds and beautifully summarizes yesterday's celebration in Rome.

In addition to her incredible dedication to the poorest of the poor, Teresa made it clear on many occasions that she appreciated the role that business plays in the world and its importance in creating prosperity. She then exhorted those who have been successful to share their gifts with the poor.

Some of her quotes I most admire:
  • "If you want to change the world go home and love your family."
  • "If you judge people you have no time to love them."
  • "If you can't feed one hundred people then feed just one."
