Whenever anyone begged to join her work, or asked how to imitate the example of her life, Mother Teresa urged them, “Find your own Calcutta.” Meaning: Instead of grabbing onto the mission that she’d made famous, people should find their own causes. Just as she’d experienced a “call within a call” that guided her to a particular kind of work, we should discover what causes move us to action, and where our energy and skills could be useful. What is your Calcutta?
