Mother Theresa

Mother Theresa died 25 years ago this month. Her name is recognised all round the world for her work in bringing help to suffering humanity. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize she always appeared cheerful and deeply committed to God in her work but writing in her diary in 1958 she admitted honestly and surprisingly., ‘My smile is a great cloak that hides a multitude of pains. People think that my faith, my hope and my love are overflowing and that my intimacy with God and His union with His will fills my heart. If only they knew.’
