THE TEACHER

Activated - - NEWS - As told by Fa­ther Tommy Lane

One day Mother Teresa took a woman off the streets of Cal­cutta. She had sores in­fested with bugs. Mother Teresa cleaned and dressed her sores while the woman never stopped shriek­ing and even us­ing swear words and in­sults. Fi­nally the woman asked,

“Sis­ter, why do you do this? Not ev­ery­one be­haves like you. Who taught you?” Mother Teresa replied, “My God taught me.” The woman said she wanted to know her God. Mother Teresa kissed her on the fore­head and said, “You know my God. My God is called love.”
