Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (Happy Birthday, Mother Teresa!) OC
"Don't look for big things, just do small things with great love."
Better known as Mother Teresa, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was an Albanian born Indian Roman Catholic Nun, who from the age of 12 after being impressed by a group of missionaries, committed her life to serving Christ. She wrote to her Sisters, "To the good God nothing is little, because He is so great and we so small—that is why He stoops down and takes the trouble to make those little things for us—to give us a chance to prove our love for Him. He makes them; they are very great. He cannot make anything small; they are infinite. Yes my dear children, be faithful in the little practices of love, of little sacrifices—of the little interior mortification—of the little fidelities to Rule, which will build you in the life of holiness—make you Christ-like." (Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, By Mother Teresa, Brian Kolodiejchuk)
