Kolkata/Calcutta & Mother Teresa’s Memory

Kolkata, India brims over with humanity. Arteries clogged with traffic, shirtless men asleep on the side walks, markets smelling of tea and spices—it’s a sensory overload place where over 14 million human beings live. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolkata)

Mother Teresa’s solidarity with the poor of Kolkata, in the name of Christ, strikes me because it’s hard for me to love such a place. But, she was able to see the individual human beings there and see them one by one. Here are a couple of pictures of her memorial chapel. These were taken during a worship service.
