Happy Birthday, Mother Teresa

Today, in 1910, Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born. We know her better as Mother Teresa. Here is one of my favorite quotes: ""It is a great poverty to decide that a child must die so that you might live as you wish."

GKC wrote, "It is the paradox of history that each generation is converted by the saint who contradicts it most." Mother Teresa would certainly be a contender for such a saint. Her compassion and sacrifice stand as a testimony to Christ against the world's self-absorption and greed.
