Mother Theresa

You mentioned working with Mother Teresa — now St. Teresa of Calcutta — what was that like for you?

Well, I worked in Kolkata, spending almost two years there, with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity, learning the culture of India. I will tell you pretty much the whole esprit de corps and the mission of the Missionaries of Charity, and the way they go about their work with love, joy and selflessness, really lifted my own experiences up to a different level.To be honest with you, I have seen that in the work of many religious around the world, even when I started off in Nicaragua, working with the Capuchins in isolated areas, and the Jesuits and other religious communities. I was taken by their commitment to the “other,” and I think Mother Teresa took that to a different level.
