Mother Teresa of Calcutta was called home to heaven on September 5, 1997. She put into concrete practice the Church’s message about the sanctity of life, seeing in each person – no matter how sick or how depraved – a reflection of the image of God, and treating them as brothers and sisters.
She spoke boldly to those in power about the evil of abortion. At her Nobel Peace Prize lecture, as well as at her speech at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC, she said that the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion. She asked, “If we allow a mother to kill her own child, how can we tell people not to kill each other?” In Mother Teresa’s memory, let’s echo that question.
