On the reverse is a brief history of Mother Teresa which states: Mother Teresa (beatified 2003) spent much of her life in the slums of Calcutta, caring day to day and with profound respect for the abandoned and gravely ill. She had a complex relation with faith, stating in letters and diaries that she lived through decades of utter spiritual darkness. But, even with these doubts, she continued her work, showing that real holiness follows from seeing the world as it is, without preconceptions, and responding with compassion–which is what good nurses and caregivers do every day.
