from Away Point - a former nun with Sisters of Charity, Mary Johnson: "Supporters of the Missionaries of Charity are often theologically similar to the sisters, interested not so much in the short-term goal (to their minds) of helping the poor as in the long-term goal of getting everyone to heaven. It’s a little bit like certain evangelical Christians who look forward to nuclear holocaust in the Middle East..."
"I cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples" - Mother Teresa, founder of Missionaries of Charity. The sisters ran hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis at a time when such people were treated as outcasts by most of society. #WomensHistoryMonth
