August 26: 40 years since Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Mother Teresa didn’t let the opportunity pass by when she had a worldwide audience in Oslo, Norway, in 1979. She called everyone to Christ and added: “The greatest destroyer of peace today is the cry of the innocent unborn child. For if a mother can murder her own child in her womb, what is left for you and for me to kill each other? … [T]oday, let us here make a strong resolution, we are going to save every little child, every unborn child, give them a chance to be born.”
