Mother Teresa: On Premies

alec vanderboom

I'm reading an excellent biography, "Mother Teresa: A Complete Authorized Biography" by Kathryn Spink. I love Mother Teresa because she is so influenced the "little way" of Carmelite Saint Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face.

This passage about Mother Teresa's work with sick children at her Missionary of Charity house, Shishu Bhavan, touched my heart.

"For all of the babies who survived the shock of premature birth, attempted abortion, or simply of being unwanted, there were those who died within an hour of arrival. Mother Teresa's attitude made the transition from practical to that of unqualified love without apparent question: "I don't care what people say about the death rate. Even if they die an hour later we must let them come. These babies must not die uncared for and unloved, because even a tiny baby can feel." (pg 60-61).
