Mother Teresa & the doctor

Jul 4, 2013

I am in the midst of a lot of learning here at St. Mary of the Lake University. Sometimes the learning reaches me. And while a lot of the learning is in the classroom, very often it’s the casual conversations and dinner discussions that carry unexpected gifts of encouragement and challenge.

Tonight at dinner a friend mentioned an encounter between Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and the doctor. He had found this on a website. You can listen to the story at this link.
