a small nun in a simple white cotton robe changed the way the world thinks.
she didn't mean to.
she just lived out her consummate radical love of people , and God used her to shake the foundations of humanism.
she was in love with everyone.
death was her constant partner; life her constant passion.
she walked her own road; did things differently; sought no titles; bowed to no one except Jesus; lived her life for one sole purpose- to love.
for a woman who never married, never bore a child, she loved far more than most wives and mothers do. the world was her nursery, the church was her husband.
i wish i could have met her.
i believe some day i will.
and i will thank mother theresa for showing us a way- to lay aside all of self and simply love.
