1951


a woman blessed
walks in charity and love -
our Saint Teresa

the works of heaven
even for mortals so blessed -
still a mystery love

I wonder how many will continue to call her mother instead of saint...

Mary said...

Well penned, Gillena!

ayala said...

I am so happy she is a saint now.

Old Egg said...

Few can doubt she was worthy of the honour.

rallentanda said...

She will always be Mother Teresa I think. Saint she may be and there are so many others too...unassuming humble selfless working nuns devoted to the poor and suffering in the third world whom no one ever hears about. Blessed Sunday to you Gillena !

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Yes she did become a saint... maybe it's easier to remember her that way, but in a way it's a pity too.

Such a degree of selfless love is indeed a great and sacred mystery!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous ❤

Jae Rose said...

It was an iconic moment - I wonder too if Saint will resonate as much as Mother.. Time will tell.. A fitting commemoration

R.K. Garon said...

Amen! So be it.

Thanks for your appreciation Bjorn, i think however it will take a long long time for people to forget her works of charity . I think the focus of both saint and Mother of can reside side by side

much love...

Lovely! The simplicity and lack of embellishment of the haiku form - the perfect vehicle to pay tribute to a woman who devoted her life to faith, charity and clarity of purpose.

Gillena Cox said...

Thanks for your appreciation Wendy
