Mother Teresa Award:

Established in 2007, as initiated by Catholic Charities in our Diocese of Evansville, this award has been presented to faithful members of the Church of Southwestern Indiana who daily live three qualities in an outstanding way: willingness to hear Jesus’ words; to listen to them; then respond to them.  The words are: “…whatever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters, you do for me!”

“Peace begins with a smile.” – Mother Teresa

Prayer: Holy Teresa, smiles should come easy, yet we find them sometimes very difficult.  Your faithfulness to God’s love showed you how to live each day in the Divine, where God’s love smiled upon you.  Help us to see God’s smile, to know His love, and to find the strength to transform our world with a simple, loving smile.  We ask in Christ’s name.  Amen.

Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata has shown us all how to live Jesus’ words by doing the small things with great love.  She will be canonized on September 4, 2016.  Learn more about this holy woman of God:
