"I will tell you another good example of how generous and great people are.

We had picked up a young orphan boy whose mother had died in the home for dying destitutes. She had come from a good family, but had come down in life because of difficult circumstances.

The boy grew up, and wanted to become a priest. When he was asked, "Why do you want to become a priest?" he gave a very simple answer. "I want to do for other children what Mother Teresa has done for me. I want to love as she loved me. I want to serve as she served me."

Today he is a priest, devoted to loving all those who have nothing and no one - those who have forgotten what human love is, or the warmth of a human touch, or even the kindness of a smile."
