Product Description

Media-Ink-Printed on Card Stock

"LOVE OF A SERVANT"

MOTHER TERESA     

Mother Teresa has always been an inspiration to me, because of her pure love for the poor, the sick, and the dying. She always gave hope to the hopeless all over the world. She has done extraordinary charitable work. Through prayer, surrender and faith, she lived to serve others.

This ink drawing of Mother Teresa is the first of a series of spiritual portraits that God inspired me to draw in the summer of 2001.

One late evening in July 2001, I was inspired to draw many faces of Mother Teresa, showing her interaction with the sick and the dying babies of India. I wanted to draw images of her as a tribute and honor to her for serving God so beautifully. Mother Teresa possessed deep humility. Mother Teresa was the greatest example of love in action in modern times.

 I found myself drawing all through the night. The ink flowed across the page, as my love for her shined through the many faces of her. Her legacy is still being passed on to find Jesus in His distressing disguise of the poorest of poor around the world.

This ink drawing of Mother Teresa is the first of a series of spiritual portraits that God inspired me to draw in the summer of 2001.
Following a retreat in the spring 2001, I asked God, "How can I serve you better with the gifts You gave me?" Immediately I was given signs that I should be using my artistic gifts.
At first, I was approached by a local gallery to have my own art show with large landscapes in Acrylic, because they saw my art from twenty years ago hanging in our restaurant. I bought the canvas and the board to create my canvases, yet the inspiration was not there. I had changed! I had grown so much spiritually; I wanted to create spiritually.

One late evening in July, I was inspired to draw many faces of Mother Teresa, showing her interaction with the sick and the dying babies of India. I wanted to draw images of her as a tribute and honor to her for serving God so beautifully. I felt like this saintly woman had been forgotten. Mother Teresa possessed deep humility. Her death was even hidden and over-shadowed by the death of Princess Diana. Mother Teresa was the greatest example of love in action in modern times.
As I listened to my Christian music, I sat in my bed drawing all through the night. A feeling of peace embraced my very being! The ink flowed across the page, as my love for her shined through the many faces of her. I remember asking God, "Why am I drawing this? Nobody asked me to draw her. Are you wanting me to create this?"
I did not finish the drawing that evening. I continued to draw every moment I had, between taking care of my family, housework, and my everyday duties for the next couple of weeks. Drawing was like praying. I longed to draw often throughout the day.
Four days after I began drawing this picture I met Father Cyril Fernandez, who was new to one of our local churches, St. Patrick's of Arcola. My husband discovered that this man had worked with Mother Teresa, helping bring abandoned babies to the Missionaries of Charity. My husband told him he should see what I was drawing.
When he saw the drawing, he exclaimed, "This is a work of Love! You need to share this with the Sisters at the Mother House in Calcutta! Maybe you could come with me when I visit my family!"
I was stunned! This sounded impossible! But I humored the man and told him I might. What was I thinking? I did not have the money or the time.
But still his words lingered in my heart for days.
I was receiving signs that I was to go. Through miraculous events, God provided for this journey to India, where I presented my artwork of Mother Teresa to Sister Nirmala at the Mother House in Calcutta. I witnessed the tireless work of love by these nuns, inspired by Mother Teresa. My heart will never be the same! Her legacy is still being passed on to find Jesus in His distressing disguise of the poorest of poor around the world.
