The Virgin Mary and Blessed Mother Teresa

Blessed Mother Teresa spread the message of Christian love for one's neighbor throughout the entire world. She was beatified by Pope Saint John Paul II in 2003 and is expected to be canonized during the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

"Mary, my dearest mother, give me your heart so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate, so full of love and humility, that I may receive Jesus as you did and go in haste to give him to others."
