    Description

    Two Exceptional Mother Teresa Signed Items, as follows: Type Letter Signed, "God bless you M Teresa me", one page with Missionaries of Charity imprint, Calcutta, India, May 6, 1988, to a Michael Gerstley. It reads: "Thank you very much for your letter of 3rd April 1988. Works of love are works of peace. Let us preach the peace of Christ as He did. He went about doing good. And so make sure that no one feels unwanted, unloved and uncared for. My prayer for you is that you grow in the likeness of Christ. May the peace of Christ be with you." Excellent condition. The second item is a 5" x 3" index card affixed with a 5-cent "Search for Peace" postage stamp and carrying an identical inscription in Mother Teresa's hand. Also excellent condition. The Macedonia-born Mother Teresa (1910-1997) became an international icon for good works during her lifetime. Her half-century of ministering to the moist unfortunate denizens of Calcutta won her world acclaim, a Nobel Peace Prize and, finally, Sainthood.
