… St. Francis' beautiful and well-loved prayer…
eloquently epitomises the gentleness, the love
and the compassion that radiate from Mother
Teresa's tiny person.
Who else in this wide world reaches out to the
friendless and the needy so naturally, so simply
so effectively? Tagore wrote "there rest Thy feet
where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost".
That is where Mother Teresa is to be found -
with no thought of, or slightest discrimination
between colour or creed, language or country.
She lives the truth that prayer is devotion,
prayer is service. Service is her concern, her
religion, her redemption. To meet her Is to feel
utterly humble, the power of tenderness, the
strength of love.
