To me, she is a rare, brave woman and I continue to champion her work. I do not stand alone in this respect for her. Her fans are many. Teresa of Calcutta speaking to an audience of 3,000 is im- pressive, to be sure. I'm not, however, speaking of just an ordinary audience. As I try to envision her on the dais before 3,000 bureaucrats in Washing- ton, I have to admit I feel a lit- tle smile spread across my face. I am amused. Imagine this frail and aged little nun, soft-spoken as she is, standing before such a large, important group The top officials and congressional leaders were among them. When this Nobel Peace Prize winner, of such great stature, in spite of her physical frailty, spoke at a National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 3, she ex- pressed herself forthrightly on her views; the views on Ameri- can and the serious ills we suf- fer. As she blamed the ever-in- creasing amount of crime on selfishness and the effect that abortion has on society, she ex- plained that accepting this practice encourages people to use any means of violence to get what they want. Selfish- ness has replaced love for her child, in a mother's heart. Not a good example, coming from the mothers of this great na- tion. ...... She was dynamic, yet hum- ble. It is reported that e to:' ceived a standing ovation, yet did not raise her voice at any time to make any kind of show or to emphasize. It is also re- ported that while she received a standing ovation, neither the Clintons nor the Gores ap- plauded. The President did, however, acknowledge that she was beyond criticism because of her life which has been spent in the service of others. Aside from the years of dedi- cated care she and her commu- nity have given to the aged, sick and dying, she has placed more than 3,000 children for adoption, from her Calcutta headquarters alone. Her exam- ple of love and caring is a far cry from the selfish and crimi- nal behavior that prevails in today's world. Again, I applaud Mother Teresa. I feel sure I am joined by a vast throng who see her earthly deeds as the kind to warrant sainthood in heaven. We are grateful for her ex- tended life and must unite our prayers, at least, for her each day as she struggles tirelessly for so many. Cleo M.
