Mother Teresa's letter to Archbishop

Place: Asansol, India               Date: 25th January 1947

Mother Teresa wrote to Archbishop Periea seeking permission to begin work with the poorest of the poor (only a few lines are written below)

Your Grace,

The longing to give all to our Lord and make many souls do the same remains the same.

I am aware that if the work begins than there will be plenty of loneliness, suffering & humiliations for me.

I have been burning with longing to love Him as He as never been loved before.

Please excuse this paper as I have no other kind. I am practicing Franciscan poverty.
It is lovely to be poor and to be free from so many things.

Pray for me

Your devoted child in Jesus Christ

Mary Teresa
