"Mother Teresa-The Little Nun"; Sept 26 poetry reading by 88-yr-old poet

Alicia Patch Oldham's avatar Alicia Patch Oldham

Alicia will be reading a poem that she wrote as a tribute to the life of Mother Teresa, who touched the lives of so many people. Like many of us, Alicia was moved by Mother Teresa's kindhearted ways, as evidenced by her tender and compassionate actions and words of hope and love. Mother Teresa had a deep commitment to helping others and spreading love to everyone throughout the world. When you read quotes from Mother Teresa, her words serve as reminders for all of us to show love and kindness to others, and to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves in any way that we can. Alicia wrote the poem (shown above) following the death of Mother Teresa in 1997. She will read her poem (and perhaps a few more) at the Lot Party on Sat. 9/26 at 1:30, and possibly Sun. 9/27 at noon. -- A portion of the quotations by Mother Teresa: “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.” “If you can't feed a hundred people, feed just one.” “Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.” “Peace begins with a smile.” “Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.”
