Flashback Friday Favorite - Mother Teresa

Agnesë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, known to many as Mother Teresa (beatified as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta after her death) was a woman of never-ending compassion for the poor, the sick and the helpless. It was with great thought and pride that Kelley released the Mother Teresa set:

John Paul II once asked: "Where did Mother Teresa find the strength and perseverance to place herself completely at the service of others? She found it in prayer and in the silent contemplation of Jesus Christ, his Holy Face, his Sacred Heart."

Although there were some controversy and criticism surrounding her faith and work, it was viewed as a sign of contradiction which, according to Catholicism, points to Christ's presence or the presence of divinity based on one's unity or reality with God.

No matter what cloud was cast over her, one thing remains certain - her humanitarian contributions helped MANY find peace and solace.
