“I don’t know what the success will be – but if the Missionaries of Charity have brought joy to one unhappy home – made one innocent child from the street keep pure for Jesus – one dying person die in peace with God – don’t you think, Your Grace, it would be worth while offering everything – for that one – because that one would bring great joy to the Heart of Jesus.”

– Mother Teresa responding to Archbishop Perier’s request to outline her plan for her desired mission in Calcutta, June 5, 1947. (Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, p. 77)
