Real Life Incident: Mother Teresa Gets Saliva from Shop Keeper:
Mother Teresa was once living in a small house in Calcutta along with some orphans. One day it so happened that there was nothing for the children to eat. Mother Teresa did not know what to do.
Mother Teresa called all the children and said, “Come children today we have nothing to eat in the house. But, if we pray to God he will surely give.” After ten minutes of prayer, Mother Teresa said to the children “Come, now let us go and beg." So they all went to beg.

Mother Teresa's Love for Poor - vastreader:The streets of Calcutta were dangerous, dirty, and crowded. People were infected with cholera and leprosy, dysentery and other diseases that were fatal in most cases. Mother Teresa and her group of helpers went among them every day with courage and conviction to do what they could to ease their pain.
One day, Mother Teresa came across a young woman in the gutter of the street, directly in front of one of the Calcutta hospitals. The woman was so ill that she did not notice or care that the rats and cockroaches were eating her feet. Mother picked up the woman and carried her into the hospital. She told the nurse inside:
This woman is dying. She needs help.
But the nurse replied:
Sorry, no room for her here. She is poor and can't pay and we can't save her anyway, so we can't waste a bed on her. Now please move along.
Mother Teresa's heart broke as she carried the woman back to the street, and there she stayed with the woman for hours until she died. Mother Teresa was angry and she felt like no one should have to die alone, forgotten and in despair in the dirty street.
Mother Teresa found an old abandoned hotel just behind a Hindu Temple and started bringing in the people the hospital refused to admit. They were so sick that she knew there was no hope of survival for them, but she felt compelled to make a place they could come to die. It was a horrible undertaking as the people who filled the rooms had open wounds covered with maggots or had parts of their bodies missing due to disease. The Hindus from the Temple did not want these people close to them and threw garbage and rocks at Mother Teresa.
One day, Mother Teresa saw a man lying on the steps of the Hindu Temple -- very sick. She learned he was one of the Hindu priests and no one at the temple would touch him for fear of getting his disease. So they put him on the steps to die. Mother Teresa picked him up and took him to the old hotel where she cared for him until he died a peaceful death. The Hindus at the temple saw what she had done and never gave her any trouble again.
Pope Waited for meeting Mother Teresa - vastreader:
Her work paid off and she gained attention from church leaders who started calling on her, support finally came in. She still remained true to her professed values and put her mission work above all.
The Hindustan Times speaks of an incident in 1965 when Pope Paul VI came to visit her in India; she informed him she was too busy with her work among the poor to meet with him. The pope was impressed with her dedication and declared his commitment to helping her with her cause, which included giving her the Lincoln he had been riding around in for his trip. She accepted the gift then auctioned it off to raise monetary funds for the people she was helping.
She later meet with him and his successors up until her death in 1997 but no matter who she was around, her attitude remained the same. She believed that the poor deserved everyone’s focus and blessing, that honoring their needs was more important than honoring authority as well as power.

Mother Teresa faced personal doubt in her beliefs - vastreader:
Such a megalith of faith, like Mother Teresa, can bring feelings of shame on believers who feel themselves inadequate in comparison, both in actions and faith. If Mother Teresa makes you feel like that, whatever your convictions are, take to heart that she expressed many doubts and agonized over her religious life.
The UK Daily Mail reports from correspondence collected over Mother Teresa's lifetime that she faced many doubts about God and couldn’t always feel his presence in her life as strongly as she felt she should; she blamed herself for the misery this caused her.
This could be one more impetus that drove her to work with the needy because it fulfilled her own need to be closer to God through good works. It appears that her faith may not have always gone the way she wanted it to because it would be difficult to believe in a merciful and loving God the way that she did when situated in an area where there was so much suffering.
Instead of giving up, she let that struggle be a fact of her life and never let it be a stumbling block in her mission work.
