Mother Teresa

As Mother Teresa’s charitable efforts become larger and better known, her support staff urge the nun to set up an official organization to better handle the logistics of administration. Why does she resist this suggestion? Is it possible to manage an international relief initiative without bureaucracy? Why does Mother Teresa want to keep the work simple and disorganized?

The English language version of Mother Teresa is 110 minutes long, while the original Italian production was 180 minutes long. Consequently, there are things missing in the telling of Mother Teresa’s story.
