We all know that power can come in small packages. Mother Teresa (one of my all-time favorite saints) was one of those packages. At just barely five feet tall, she answered God’s call in her life to care for the poorest of the poor. Many of these poor lived a life materially poor but rich in spirituality.
I’m not going to go on and on and list facts about this amazing human life, known as an incredible vessel for God, because most people have heard of her; they’ve heard about her extraordinary faith and sacrifices. However, I AM going to mention one miracle that happened through her, because…well…I love it…but also, because it can’t be denied. I’m also leaving a Youtube link at the end of this post to my favorite movie about Mother Teresa. It’s real footage of her life over a period of five years. It’s a movie believed to have led to her Nobel Peace Prize. During this period, and also captured on film in this movie, was her role in Beirut when they were at war in the 80’s. They were desperately in need of medicine, food and water. Because of the gunfire that occurred at that time, she was not allowed to cross in and help. That did not disturb her peace. She simply and respectfully mentioned that she would ask Our Lady for a cease fire. She said (not a direct quote), “If there’s a cease fire, will you let me cross?” I’m sure you can guess what happened next…there was a cease fire; she crossed with her nuns; they helped with basic human needs.
As a Catholic there’s a misconception that we worship the mother of God. We do not. We respect her and the love that Jesus has for her, especially since she is His mother.
There are so many miracles that have happened and continue to happen that hold REAL physical and scientific proof. I ask you to take a look at that proof and the power of God in it. I know where I want to be, who I choose, how about you? What do you think of the power of miracles?
