Mother Teresa on Success

"I don't know what the success will be - but if the Missionaries of Charity have brought joy to one unhappy home - made one innocent child from the street keep pure for Jesus - one dying person die in peace with God - don't you think, Your Grace, it would be worth while offering everything - for that one - because that one would bring great joy to the Heart of Jesus."

- Mother Teresa responding to Archbishop Perier's request to outline her plan for her desired mission in Calcutta, June 5, 1947. (Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, p. 77)
