By Our Correspondent, 26/08/2021, Agartala

Like every year the 111st birth anniversary of Mother Teresa was observed in Agartala’s Nirmala Sishu Bhawan with full devotion. On the occasion, sisters and bishops remembered Mother Teresa and her teachings.

Speaking on the occasion a Bishop said that “Mother is not among us, but she is in heaven praying for us all, looking after us all. The world is hungry for love and peace. There is no love and justice, there is so much fighting and wars. Mother showed love to all. If everyone shows the same love to one another, the world will be a peaceful place. I pray on this occasion that everyone lives together with this feeling of love. Mother gave us this message which she received from Jesus Christ and we all must live following it,” the Bishop mentioned.

Canonised on September 4, 2016, Saint Teresa Of Calcutta better known as Mother Teresa was born in Skopje on August 26, 1910. The founder of Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, Teresa received a number of honours during her lifetime including the Ramon Magsaysay Peace Prize in 1962 and Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.

Here are Mother Teresa’s motivational quotes:

1. We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

2. We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.

3. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

4. Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.

5. Peace begins with a smile.

6. We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

7. Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is love; joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.

15. Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.

16. Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home.

17. If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
