Kolkata: 

The nuns of the Missionaries of Charity celebrated the 103rd birth anniversary of Mother Teresa, who formed the Catholic order to serve the needy and the ailing.

Special prayers were held at the congregation’s global headquarters Mother House in Kolkata yesterday.

Her three-foot-high cement grave on the ground floor was covered with flowers, as people from all walks of life trooped in to pay their respects.

Expressing her gratitude to all those who had come, the order’s Superior General Sister Prema said blessed Teresa would be remembered for her love for the ailing, the poor and the dying.

At the West Bengal state secretariat, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee garlanded a portrait of the Mother.

Sister Prema, nuns and small inmates of several homes of the MoC were present on the occasion.

“Mother was the apostle of peace, brotherhood and service to humanity, particularly the uncared for and the poorest of the poor. Her life and her works epitomize selfless service to the suffering millions.

“In today’s world, when we see so much of sufferings still around, we must resolve to rededicate ourselves to the ideals of the Mother to wipe out tears and embrace the suffering souls with love and warmth,” Banerjee said in a Facebook post.

Mother Teresa was born as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Skopje (Macedonia) on Aug 26, 1910 to an ethnic Albanian family. She made Kolkata her home and workplace for 68 years since 1929. She formed the congregation in 1950.

She was given the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and died here Sept 5, 1997.

Dr. (Sr.) Mudita Reacts to Media Report of Mumbai Rape Case

It is Heartening to note that few members of the Clergy, are interacting with the masses on the subjects of Concern and not limiting themselves to Just Preaching.

SILENT VOICE Salutes them…..

Dr. (Sr.) Mudita’s letter to the Editor of TOI, in response to a News Report.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH..

 

Political Will A Must
This is with reference to Headline news item on Pg 1 “Mumbai rape accused held at Delhi-Haryana Border by V Narayan (Aug 26th). All 5 suspects in custody within 65 hours is no great surprise! Because a photo journalist was the victim, it was backed by politicians. With political will, even the so called impossible can be made possible. Only when the culprits are caught quickly and punished strictly, will it act as a deterrent and bring down the rate of rape. Minors who commit such delinquencies should be dealt with severely. Are their parents and teachers not responsible for such behaviour? What have they taught them? To rape their blood sisters? That such a heinous crime is committed in broad daylight in a metropolitan city like Mumbai is atrocious. What values are we imparting to our youngsters? The very thought of the 22 year old gang rape in Mumbai is enough to send a shudder down the spine of any right thinking woman.
