MOTHER TERESA

Mother Teresa was then staying at her Creek Lane residence, merely five minutes away from our home. I had seen her then going for herdaily teaching mission at Loreto Convent. She later on left this job and established the “Missionaries of Charity” and completely devoted herself to the service of the downtrodden. She knew me for a long time. We used to throw away the cartridges containing the camera films. She noticed the waste and asked us to hand them over to her instead, which could be put to a better use to keep medicines for individual patients. I accumulated the cartridges from then on from my colleagues and added mine and handed over to her three sacksful a few months later. She was very pleased and said in her inimitable style "God bless you".
