Words of Wisdom from Mother Teresa...






"But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another?"



--Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, most humble servant of God, author and founder of the Missionaries of Charity, a religious order with over 4500 nuns around the world, which adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty, obedience and tending to "the poorest of the poor." For over 45 years she tended to the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta, India, won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, and was considered by millions as one of the most admired people of the 20th century.  She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003.
