Sunday Quote and Photograph: Forgive Them Anyway–Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are honest, people may cheat you.
Be honest anyway.

If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give your best anyway.

For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.”

The photograph subject was from a pamphlet given to us along with some rosaries by the missionary nuns when we visited Missionaries of Charity Home of Joy for the Sick Children in Tondo, Manila, Philippines.

I took the photos earlier today as I woke up inspired by the news that Mother Teresa of Calcutta will be canonized.   Then I posted this at around 6:00 PM on a Sunday, 4th of September 2016 while watching CNN's current news that the noble Mother Teresa has just been named a SAINT!

She’s now Saint Teresa but I still prefer to call her my Mother Teresa.

TRIVIA/FACTS:

Mother Teresa is known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta since her canonization today 4th September 2016. She was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun and missionary born Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu on August 26 1920 and died on September 5, 1997.  She founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religeous congregation which run homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis.
