Excerpts from a conversation at TalkCity.com about two recent deaths:
Retch1: farewell to two great women
dlisa: it's a shame that the media didn't give as much coverage to Mother Teresa's funeral as they did Diana's sudden death.
SFDELI1: i agree
MgBlssm: but Princess Diana was the paparazzi. she was media frenzy in itself. Mother Teresa was more for the people.
dlisa: doesn't make it right.
Dionica: anyone sign any condolence books?
Innsys: i did
Edl8840: same here.
Dionica: you can go to http://www.createcom.com/mother/index.html and send a cyber memorial message.
MgBlssm: it rained so much in Calcutta. shows definitely a day for mourning.
Dionica: thank God it was a state funeral.
soulboy: many couldn't get tickets to the funeral but thousands lined up. wish i could have been there.
RWGeorge: lets pray that they pass and make her a saint.
soulboy: Sister Nirmala her successor said her ambition was to become a saint.
dlisa: there was talk of making Diana a saint also. the nerve!
Defend60: her heart failed her body but the world will always have her heart in love.
RiorJJ: i met Mother T. but I didn't say anything to her. but we communicated when she looked at me.
RiorJJ: she was a small woman but you felt so much love from her.
dlisa: she felt so strongly about abortion along with the pope. . . . my favorite quote by Mother Teresa is "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching it's people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want."
Far2far: mine is "Let's do something beautiful for God." I live by those words.
Nsys155: any other favorite quotes? Come on you guys.
RWGeorge: OK. "if we pray, we believe, if we believe we will love, if we love, we will share."
dlisa: "give until it hurts."
CLEMS101: "a nation that destroys the life of an unborn child, who has been created for living and loving, who has been created in the image of God, is in a tremendous poverty." I reading that from a book. :-)
Dionica: "We must make our homes centers of compassion and forgive endlessly." I reading that from a magazine story. LOL
Nsys155: "If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are." I know this one by heart. :-)
dlisa: Mother Teresa lived like a pauper and died like a queen.
