The Quotidian, October 11, 2010 ~ Build Anyway

“… What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway….” ~ Mother Teresa (August 27, 1910 to September 5, 1997) Later, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

This is a short portion of a much longer quotation from Mother Teresa.

Sister Teresa received Papal permission to serve as an independent nun in Calcutta, India, and began her service in the late 1940s. There in the slums where the poorest of the poor lived, Sister Teresa ministered to the neediest people.
