A Word from Mother Teresa

“It is easy to think of the poverty far away and forget very quickly.  Today a great disease is that feeling of terrible loneliness, the feeling of being unwanted, having forgotten what human joy is, what the human feeling is of being wanted or loved.  I think this is found in very well-to-do families also.

We may not have people hungry for a plate of rice or for a piece of bread in New York City, but there is a tremendous hunger and a tremendous feeling of unwantedness everywhere.  And that is really a very great poverty.” – Mother Teresa
