Who remembers the sky-blue pink crayon in the big green and yellow Crayola box (with the sharpener on the back)?

Mother Teresa at the Ritz

AMU had its big gala tonight (at the Ritz). The legendary Myra Daniels (may God bless her and this project more and more) and President Towey seem well-positioned to raise the millions needed for the new performing arts theater and Mother Teresa museum. I am a big supporter of this very worthy project, which will be about 300 yards from my front porch. But I couldn’t stop laughing at the first sentence of this story (close your eyes and imagine a wrinkled Sister in a white sari tapping her toes to the music):

which brought this book to mind:

Godattheritz

Monsignor Albacete’s book “God at the Ritz” is excellent (if you live in town I’ll loan it to you)

UPDATE: As ever, the Ave Herald has the best coverage of the gala:

“You have blessed me by giving me the chance to do this,” Mrs. Daniels said. “This is the most exciting thing I have done. It’s needed, it’s wanted, and it will change the life of the students.”

and of the dedication of the temporary home of the Mother Teresa Museum:

Sr. Lima Marie told the group, “I really feel the presence of Mother here. Anyone who visits won’t be the same person when they come out of this room.”
