    I just cannot believe that more was not written about this loving and saintly lady. She was a true saint and should be recognized as such. Mother Teresa's life truly emulated the love of Christ as she was fully committed to His heart and His cross. She won the "Noble Peace Prize", won the hearts of millions and yet this is how we pay tribute to her?

    Mother St. Teresa, we are privileged that you lived in our lifetime to teach us how to be Christ-like. Pray for us, dear saint. Help all those who are bed-ridden, helpless and sad on account of being immobile. Teach us to be caring towards them, no matter what difficulties we face. Dear saint, we know about you and your life. Thank you.

    Perhaps my computer stopped loading before the article has finished, but I'm only getting the part up to her entering a convent in Ireland. I'm missing about 70 years of her life. Is that the way it is supposed to be on the site?
