Nun extraordinaire

On this Teacher’s day,
To this saintly woman let’s pray!
Born as Agnes in Albania,
She became a beacon of hope for the homeless in India.
She tended to wounds infested by maggots,
And healed with her miraculous touch, even the slightest of cuts!
To orphans, she was a mother,
And a physician/nurse to the lepers,
And to everyone else, a teacher who taught us to care for the poor.
So, let’s remember this star o’ a nun,
Mother Teresa, our saintly mum!
