Imagine a giant picture of Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa smiling and holding hands, because I don't feel like posting it.

quote:
You are 1 of 11

Hi - I am picking 11 people (who have touched my life) and who I think would want to receive this. Please send it back to me (You'll see why).
In case anyone is not aware, Saint Theresa is known as the Saint of the Little Ways, meaning she believed in doing the little things in life well and with great love. She is also the patron Saint of flower growers and florists. She is represented by roses. May everyone who receives this message be blessed. Theresa's Prayer cannot be deleted. REMEMBER to make a wish before you read the prayer. That's all you have to do. There is nothing attached. Just send this to eleven people and let me know what happens on the fourth day. Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please. Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.

Saint Theresa's prayer:

May today there be peace within. May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God. Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Now, send this to 11 people within the next 5 minutes. And remember to send this back. I count as 1.. you'll see why.

I think she's getting her Theresa(s) confused.

Damn glurgers, trying to pass off Mother Theresa for another lady! (Is Mother Theresa a saint now, anyway?)

I like the pushy yet passive message - "Theresa's Prayer cannot be deleted." followed by "Sorry you have to forward the message, but try not to break this, please."

I don't think she's a saint yet, I'm pretty sure she's been Beatified (sp) though. One step closer to sainthood.

Does this apply to "first of two" as well?

I keep thinking of the episode of Penn and Teller's BS where they debunk Mother Theresa, Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama as being 'more' then human.
