Mother Teresa: “Saint of the Gutters”
Mother Teresa was a woman that boldly demonstrated her faith, in the Almighty God, (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) through her life and ministry. She answered her call at the age of 12, and began pursuing her ministry by the age of 17. She travelled half way across the world, from Albania to India (where she died) in order to pursue her ministry of feeding the orphans, the homeless, and the hungry of Calcutta, India; and eventually around the world. She took the pain of her past, and put it towards helping those who have felt that same pain, to empathize with those that have walked the same shoes that she has.
Mother Teresa had shown the world the impact of random acts of kindness, as well as answering God’s Call can have in the world; as well as Humanity. She was able to become a witness to all of humanity, of the Unconditional Love that Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshu Christu) showed us on the Cross, at Calvary. Mother Teresa dedicate her life to showing all those that she encountered, as she walked on this earth, that they were not alone, though the world abandoned them. She adopted orphans, provided a home for the homeless and the elderly, and even provided food for the hungry. She not only believed, but lived the lifestyle of the unconditional love that Jesus Christ professed through His Ministry, while He roamed this earth. She believed that as one person, she can spark the flame to inspire all those that she encountered to do the same. She believed in all circumstances in life, that we all have the choice to choose to answer to God with how we live our lives on this earth, while we have it. We should not be shaken with what evil tries to throw at us, in order to discourage us off of the path the God (Devum, Jehovah, Yahweh) called for us to follow. We are to rise above the sinful human nature, that will try to block us from what the Holy Spirit is trying to guide us to do.
We must remember, we should be constantly refining our own faith. Evil will try to afflict us with so many doubts about God and His Ways; even about our own spiritual journeys, and make us doubt what God has already confirmed within us. We should always remain focused on the Divine Laws of Love, and the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. In the end, God will not measure the earthly success that we have achieved on this earth, but how we remained faithful to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom, and to God.
Mother Teresa, through her understanding of her own faith, and through her ministry, showed all of humanity the importance of unconditional love and empathy. She was so successful in her ministry because of the empathy she was able to demonstrate to those she ministered through, in the testimony she carried in her heart….and the conviction that God, the Father of Creation had shown her, through her own life experiences. She remembered how alone she felt….how less loved she felt by the world, when she was amongst the poor, as a child….or felt orphaned when her father passed away. In a time where women rarely took on any leadership roles (especially in the eastern part of the world) the conviction that God, the Father of Creation, gave her through her testimony is what catapulted her to international ministry that she established, which inspired millions. for many generations. This is the fruit that she bore the Eternal Kingdom of God, in her ministry. She donned on the clothing of the street sweepers and the public toilet cleaners of the Calcutta, India slums….so that she can become the servant of Humanity, in addition to taking the oaths required of a Catholic Nun. Though many claim that she struggled with her faith at times, those who are on the spiritual path to the Eternal Kingdom know what Scripture in the Holy Bible dictates of a soul that is bound to the Eternal Kingdom. Such a soul has to go through the Refiner’s Fire, to break itself from the world’s way, to which God the Father of Creation states that He is not a part of. Such a soul destined for the Eternal Kingdom, will struggle with the ways of this world, because they do not belong to it…but belong to a more heavenly realm, which dictates to be in conflict with the ways of the world, to which God, the Father of Creation states He is not a part of, since His Divine Laws of Love are not a part of. She never did the things she did for the sake of gainly earthly gain or fame…but because her souls knew no other way to live but to follow God’s Call for her.
We must always remind ourselves when we daily listen for God to speak us, just as Mother Teresa did, and demonstrated
