Simple place that is a tribute to serving God. "Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus." Mother Theresa "The thief's purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life." Jesus

As expected this visit was a humbling and moving experience. When you walk inside the house, a calmness fills the air and you forget you're in the busy and noisy city of Kolkata. Visiting her bedroom struck me the most. To see how little she worked with, but to know the effect she had on the world.
