"I choose the poverty of our poor people. But I am grateful to receive (the Nobel) in the name of the hungry, the naked, the homeless, of the crippled, of the blind, of the lepers, of all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared-for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone."

Prayer for peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peaceWhere there is hatred…let me sow love.Where there is injury…pardon.Where there is doubt…faith.Where there is despair…hope.Where there is darkness…light.Where there is sadness…joy.

O Divine master, grant that I may not so much seekTo be consoled…as to console,To be understood…as to understoodTo be loved…as to love,

ForIt is in giving…that we receive,It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned,It is in dying..that we are born to eternal life.

Her Literature…MESSAGE OF LOVE...

The poor are great peopleThe poor do not need our sympathy and our pity.

The poor need our love and compassion.They give us much more than we give them.

During a terrible time when millions of refugees fled to India,we asked for help and many volunteers came and spent some months with us,

just loving, serving, giving tender love and care to our people. On their departure, they said they had received much more than they had given.

In Calcutta, some time ago, we went out at night and picked up four or five people from the street and took them to our Home for the Dying. One of them was in a very bad condition and I wanted to take care of her myself. I did for her all that my love could do. When I put her into bed, she took hold of my hand and there was such a

wonderful smile on her face. She said one word: "Thank you" and she died. She gave me much more than I had given her. She gave me her grateful heart and I thought: what

would I have done in her place? My answer was: I would have tried to draw some attention to myself, I would have said: I am hungry or I am cold or I am dying. But she,

she was so great, she was so beautiful in her giving. The poor are great people.

Quotes :

“ Nakedness is not only for a piece of clothing; nakedness is lack of human dignity, and also that beautiful virtue of purity, and lack of that respect for each other.”

“ I realized that I had the call to take care of the sick and the dying, the hungry, the naked, the homeless - to be God's Love in action to the poorest of the poor. That was the beginning of Missionaries of Charity.”
