Brave New World

Author: Jaacob Thomas

Disgust...but hope..

Is this the ‘brave new world’? Millions are mired in material prosperity, obsessed with wealth and power, oblivious to the billions eking out a tragic, pitiful existence at the margins of life. On a spiritual plane, millions have turned their faces firmly away from God, worshiping instead false prophets and graven images.

In the midst of this sordidness, the wondrous mission of Mother Teresa shines forth as a beacon of hope amidst the murk of our superficial modern-day existence. That one such as she could emerge, chrysalis-like, from a remote mountain village in Albania, and go on to bring succor and surcease to millions in one of the world’s most desperately poor and wretched cities is truly the miracle of our times.
