why did you choose to stop teaching and help the poor
In 1946, while still teaching at the school, I experienced a call to leave the convent and help the poor. In 1948, the Vatican finally gave me permission to leave the Sisters and begin my mission. After six months of basic medical training, I entered Calcutta's slums with just a goal to aid the poor.
