I was thinking about this quite a bit, and it took me a long time to settle on just one, but in the end, she was the only one I could choose.
First, I picked Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, or Mother Teresa as she is more commonly called. Blessed Teresa died when I was nine, and I remember watching her funeral with my mom on TV on a Saturday morning in early September. From that day until now, she has inspired me to be a better person and to be open to the movement of the Holy Spirit in my life so that God may “show his greatness using nothingness,” to quote Blessed Teresa.
Above all, she is, to me, the greatest mirror of the face of Christ I have encountered-even if I haven’t met her. But I will-in heaven.
