PAGE 4 THE GUARDIAN, JUNE 11, 1982 Mother Teresa Has Touched Us Continued from Pg. 3 happy to receive the money as I already had planned how to spend it for the poor. It also brought about some concern for the poor." Answering another question, she said: "God gives every person an op- portunity to do good. And when you do good, you see God...Don't destroy another person by words or deeds but follow the words of Jesus to love one another." She said she was hoping to visit the Soviet Union and China at a future date. "I don't know when," she con- tinued, "it (an invitation) has to come from them." Asked about her funding, Mother Teresa said, "The money always seems to be there when we need it. We don't solicit funds or food but it seems to come when necessary. I've never had to say to the poor, 'We don't have it.'" Asked if her Sisters staffed- other homes like the Abba "See me for car, home. life, health and business insurance'.'

We call them childrens' homes." Speaking of abortion, she said, "It is clear murder when a mother kills her unborn child. They are so innocent and helpless. A born child can cry or something, but an unborn child can do neither. These little human beings should have the joy of recognizing Christ." She stressed the value of natural family planning. "My Sisters have started teaching the poor people of India this method and the birth rate has dropped 1.5 million yearly due to it," she explained Then she spoke of various types of love -- family, each other and people of other cultures. "The less we have, the more we can give. If we have Jesus, we have all things," she added. Following the press con- ference, she went to the Cathedral of St. Andrew for lunch in the rectory and a brief rest. (Jon LeMay, with Peter Majors Studio, assisted The Guardian in obtaining pictures of Mother Teresa's historic visit to Little Rock. Anyone in- terested in obtaining a picture or pictures may contact him at 663-9375. ) The next item on her busy agenda was a talk at Ray Winder Field to the "largest non-baseball crowd in memory," according to Bill Valentine, general manager of the Arkansas Travelers who play baseball there. Actual turnstile count was 5,429. Knights of Columbus from all over the state served as ushers and controlled the crowd. The prayer service opened with the hymn, "All Creatures of our GOd and King." Bishop McDonald then welcomed the crowd and introduced Mother Teresa saying, "I know you came to hear this frail, dynamic little woman who has captured the hearts of the world, a saintly, loving, caring mother." Father J. Gaston Hebert, pastor of Christ the King Church in Little Rock, then gave the opening prayer. Mrs. Mildred Zinser, Diocesan Council of Catholic Women, gave the first reading (Isaiah 1:11-17) and the Diocesan Singers followed with a responsorial psalm. Sister Carole Kaucic, S.C.N., president of the Diocesan Council of Women Religious, gave the second reading (Romans 12:1-21). Permanent Deacon Don Maes then read the Gospel (John 17:10-20). Then came what the crowd had been awaiting, a 25- minute talk by Mother Teresa. She opened with a prayer to Mary, the Mother of God. She spoke of Mary's love for Jesus when he was a little unborn child in her womb, recognizing the coming of God himself. "Today, like little unborn Michelob Light 00atura/ [/q/t/ No. 1 GARRISON AVE.

I have called you by name...You are mine.. .You are precious to me because you are mine...I love you." "The greatest thing in the world is to love and be loved. We can love one another..." Speaking Jesus' words, she said, "I was hungry and you fed me...I was naked and you clothed me...I was homeless and you took me in. "There is a great hunger in human hearts for love," she continued. "There is a hunger in an unborn child to be wanted by his mother. Homelessness is not the lack of brick and steel, but of being rejected. I remember once when I took the hand of a dying poor man in Calcutta, he said, 'Oh, after such a long, long time, I have again felt the touch of a human hand...' "Prayer always gives us a clean heart and a clean heart can see GOd. The saying, 'A family that prays together, stays together' is very true. If you really want peace, love and joy, bring Jesus back to the family...Abortion is the greatest killer against peace. If we help others to Jesus, we have peace, love and joy in our own hearts and love begins at home... "It's not how much we give but how much love we put in giving...If you don't want your child, give it to my Sisters. I always want a child. .My Sisters and I are bound to the vow of poverty. We depend on divine providence. The less we have, the more we have to give." She concluded, "God bless you." Following her talk, Chris Koch, of the Diocesan Youth Department, led the crowd in a Litany of Unity. The Gospel Choir, State Office of Black Catholics, sang the meditation hymn, "Surely the Presence of the Lord is in this Place," followed by the Diocesan Choir with the "Our Father." George Hart, of the Office of Ministry to the Handicapped, recited the Beatitudes. Father Hebert gave the last blessing and the service ended with the recessional hymn, "Praise God From Whom all Blessings Flow." Mother Teresa then went and mingled with the crowd before departing for the airport to catch her 4:45 P.M. flight to Dallas and then to San Francisco. More people were on hand to bid her farewell at the airport and after she departed, Bishop McDonald showed a diamond wedding ring that Mother Teresa had given him. "She said someone gave it to her out at Ray Winder Field," he said. "She didn't know who it was but the lady told her to sell it and use the money for her work." That's an indication of how Mother Teresa has entered the hearts of Arkansans. will sponsor an Ice Cream Social Saturday, June 12, at St. John's Parish Hall, 528 West Grand, starting at 6:30 P.M.
