This compelling image of Mother Teresa at prayer is by Br. Claude Lane.
Icon greeting cards are single-fold cards printed on heavy stock, 4.38" x 5.93". The cards are blank inside for your own message or custom imprint and have an explanation of the history and symbolism of the icon printed on the back.
Saint Teresa is remembered especially for her active works of charity on behalf of the world’s poor, sick, and dying. Why has Brother Claude preserved this image of her kneeling in prayer? Why not show her holding a child or cleansing a leper? A book was published in 1995 called “A Simple Path,” consisting of writings and interviews with
Mother Teresa and some of her followers. In this book, she shared some of the thoughts and experiences that are the basis for her extraordinary works of charity. The outline of Saint Teresa’s “Simple Path” is this:
The fruit of silence is PRAYER.
The fruit of prayer is FAITH.
The fruit of faith is LOVE.
The fruit of love is SERVICE.
The fruit of service is PEACE.
Prayer was at the root and beginning of her approach to life. She said “Without prayer I could not work for even half an hour.” Saint Teresa prayed in order to become closer to God. The closer she became, the more strongly the message of Jesus to “love one another” spoke to her. The more she responded to the message to love, the more compelled she became to help the people she saw around her who were in the greatest need of help, “the poorest of the poor” in India and then throughout the world.
