St. Teresa of Calcutta - Infant Onesie
Teresa of Calcutta, esteemed around the world for her intense, compassionate
care of the abandoned poor and dying, inspired thousands to do the same through
her religious order, the Missionaries of Charity. Her first home for the dying in Calcutta
blossomed internationally into orphanages, homes for aids/HIV victims, for
lepers, for the elderly, and for the disabled, as well as aid centers for
refugees and victims of war and natural disasters. Not merely a paragon of charitable action, St.
Teresa lived an ascetic life of deep prayer, the well from which she ultimately
drew. In every chapel of the
Missionaries of Charity one finds the words "I thirst" beside the
crucifix. Those words inspired her consummate
vocation "to quench the thirst of Jesus for souls, for love, for kindness,
for compassion, for delicate love." The original watercolor illustration is
captured with quality on this soft cotton tee.
