“A missionary of Charity is a carrier of God’s love especially to the poorest of the poor, setting all on fire with love for HIm and one another, a healing touch of God that cures all diseases; a soothing smile of God that warms all hearts; God’s own language of love that all hearts understand.” ~ Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I hadn’t planned on making any new costumes this year. I was just going to alter what I had on hand from the previous years. When I realized how much altering would be needed, I decided to see if someone wanted to be a Missionary of Charity – Mother Teresa. I’ve always wanted a lil’ Mother Teresa for All Saints Day. I didn’t have any takers so I
bribed offered a nice incentive. Sparkles took me up on the offer, of course. She said that she is saving for presents and could use the incentive. Sweetie followed suite.
I intended to make both the girls a Missionary of Charity outfit. However, my boys and I are sick. I only managed to put one sari together.
It was a no sew costume made from pillow cases purchased at the thrift store. I always look for nice linens to recycle for our embroidery projects. I had all the supplies on hand.
Sparkles designed her costume for St. Elizabeth of Hungary.
I love that my children set their hearts and minds on faithfilled things at this time and are not consumed with worldly ways. Deo gratias!
I had a pleasant and timely surprise waiting for me when I returned home from my photo session. A dear friend sent my husband and I a great spiritual read. Sweetie was thrilled with surprise, too. She can’t wait to read them!
