Serving the Poorest of the Poor: St. Teresa of Calcutta (Download)

  • $7.00

Teach your students pro-life principles by sharing the life and works of St. Teresa of Calcutta. Through her work among the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa gives us a concrete example of what it means to live out pro-life principles and reach out to those suffering in our own communities by performing the Corporal Works of Mercy. After all, being pro-life is about respecting and protecting the dignity of all human persons from the moment of creation forward.

St. Teresa of Calcutta is best known for her love of the poor, but she was also a staunch defender of preborn children and took every opportunity to remind others of their value. This lesson assists parents and teachers in explaining how to live out the Corporal Works of Mercy, thereby laying a strong pro-life foundation for students.
