Words of Relevance: Mother Teresa

In a piece at "First Things" this week, the author, Kate Monaghan, quotes from Mother Teresa speaking about spiritual poverty: Mother Teresa said she had never seen such poverty as that which she had witnessed in the United States. But she wasn’t talking about physical poverty.

Here's the quote from Blessed Mother Teresa:

“I have been to many countries and seen much poverty and suffering . . . But of all the countries I have been to, the poorest one I have been to is America. . . America suffers most from the poverty of loneliness.”
