I mentioned that now St. Theresa of Calcutta, in front of the odious Clintons back in the day, was not silent.
Finally, we can’t be silent in concrete concern for the poor, not just those who are hungry for bread, as St. Theresa said, but who are spiritually and emotionally hungry. Be concerned for the concrete cases in front of you, not the abstract poor out there somewhere. Don’t be silent in action in their regard.

Here is the video of St. Theresa of Calcutta at the famous National Prayer Breakfast. There was sustained applause. The odious Clintons did not applaud.
Please take the time to watch this. Make sure your children see it. Share it around.
