"Let us be very sincere with each other and have the courage to accept each other as we are. Do not be preoccupied with each other's failures; rather, find the good in each other, for each one of us is created in the image of God." - Mother Teresa
Mother Theresa (1910-1997) was a nun among the destitute of the Calcutta slums who became one of the most beloved and highly respected women in the world. Recipient of many humanitarian awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, she was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003, which is a precursor to sainthood.
The Mother Theresa Wisdom Deck contains 50 cards featuring excerpts from her writings. Each card depicts one of nine duotone photographs of Mother Theresa and a quotation that corresponds to nine themes:
This deck comes in a lovely copper-toned box which has a built-in frame for displaying either a quotation or one of the inspirational images. Coppery iridescence frames each card on both sides.
Some of the inspirational quotes from the Mother Teresa Wisdom Deck include:
"There are many people who can do big things, but there are very few people who will do the small things."
"We have no right to judge the rich. What we desire is not a class struggle but a class encounter, in which the rich save the poor and the poor save the rich."
"There are thousands of people dying for a piece of bread. There are thousands upon thousands dying for a bit of love."
"Be kind to each other. It is better to commit faults with gentleness than to work miracles with unkindness."
"Whatever our religion, we know that if we really want to love, we must first learn to forgive."
Mother Teresa possessed a special talent for finding sacredness in the tasks and choices of everyday living. She conveyed her wisdom, compassion and profound spiritual guidance through both her words and her deeds. Although she was personally acquainted with popes, presidents and royalty, she never hesitated to do the most menial of tasks.
The Mother Teresa Wisdom Deck transmits the graceful prose, gentle spirit and clear insight of this beloved nun. The lovely box and inspirational cards would be enjoyed by anyone who admires Mother Teresa and her message of compassion, generosity, and humility.
