Today we celebrated a special day with the Missionaries of Charity, a day of remembering the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who died on September 5, 1997. Her legacy continues to move the world even years after her passing.
Here in Jacmel, the Sisters serve the poorest of the poor, God’s first love. They care for small children who are malnourished, children and young adults with special needs, and the aged. All of these who have no place to call home. With the sisters, they have a home. Today’s celebration was for everyone and, after the beautiful Mass, the feast continued with over 300 people being served a delicious meal. We were blessed to be among them.
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”― Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa of Calcutta, pray for us!
