St. Teresa of Calcutta

Artist: 
Julie Lonneman

Artist's Narrative:
The Lord made this simple woman who came from one of Europe's poorest regions a chosen instrument to proclaim the Gospel to the entire world, not by preaching but by daily acts of love towards the poorest of the poor. A missionary with the most universal language: the language of love that knows no bounds or exclusion and has no preferences other than for the most forsaken.
—Pope John Paul II

Albania/India, 1910-1997.
