"Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them."

[James 1:27]

Saint Mother Teresa (1910-1997) took her first religious vows as a nun at 19 and chose to be named after Thérèse de Lisieux, the patron saint of missionaries. In 1946, Sister Teresa received a “call within the call” while traveling from Calcutta to Darjeeling, India. This call later grew into the Missionaries of Charity which is known globally for serving the “poorest of the poor.” Mother Teresa once said: “We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.”

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) was a brilliant philosopher. She stopped believing in God at 14. Through study of philosophy she grew into a woman of integrity and intelligence, following the truth wherever it led her. She came across the autobiography of St. Teresa of Avila, which she read all in one night, and upon finishing exclaimed, “This is the Truth!” This began a spiritual journey that led to her to being baptized Catholic. She later became a Carmelite nun.

"Lay all your cares about the future trustingly in God's hands, and let yourself be guided by the Lord just like a little child." - Edith Stein, St Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, Feast Day 9 August.
