Feast Day: September 5
Mother Teresa’s story took place recently! 1n 1910, she was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Yugoslavia, became an Albanian nun and founded The Missionaries of Charity. She spent her entire life helping others. Here is a one of Mother Teresa’s inspirational philosophical prayers:
“People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered;
love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish,
ulterior motives; do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and enemies;
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow;
do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness makes you vulnerable;
be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building may be
destroyed overnight; build anyway.
People really need help but they may
attack you if you help them; help them anyway.
Give the world the best you’ve got and
the world will kick you in the teeth;
give the best you’ve got anyway!”
