October is Mother Teresa Month. Perhaps not officially but with the biopic Mother Teresa & Me due in theaters as a one-night Fathom Event on Thursday, October 5th and the fact that, through a deal with the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission, the above one-hour documentary film Mother Teresa: No Greater Love will be airing on ABC-affiliated stations over the next several weeks, its an exciting time for her many admirers.

Produced by the Knights of Columbus, filmed on five continents and featuring unprecedented access to both institutional archives and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity, the show chronicles the life of Mother Teresa and the profound spiritual and physical impact she and her Missionaries of Charity have had — and continue to have — on Catholics and non-Catholics alike throughout the world.
Knights leader Patrick E. Kelly says “Mother Teresa taught us that there are no expendable people…Everyone we encounter is made in the image of God. So, when she was feeding the hungry or holding the hands of someone as they lay dying, she was treating them as she would the most important person in her life, Jesus Christ himself. And, in all of this, she was teaching us to have a heart that sees. If we can learn to see as she did, the world would be a radically different and, I would say, better place.”
