Missionaries Of Charity Nuns Make India Proud By Refusing To Quit Ukraine To Serve Suffering Humanity: Dr. Abraham Mathai

Former Vice Chairman, Minorities Commission, Dr. Abraham Mathai, praised Missionaries of Charity nuns for making a choice of refusing to quit Ukraine to serve suffering humanity. He says that by doing so, they have made India proud.

He said, “The decision by the two Missionaries of Charity nuns from Mizoram to stay back in Ukraine to serve suffering humanity, amidst a full scale military invasion by Russia and the ensuing devastations of war is hugely laudable, and more importantly has made India proud. They are prepared to be martyred for the service of humanity and this is true with every nun belonging to the Missionaries of charity all over the world.”

He said that nuns have indeed personified the true missionary spirit of what Christianity stands for – ‘love your neighbour’. Sisters Rosela and Ann Frida preferred not to flee to safety, but chose to risk their lives in the face of great danger and help the sick, injured and the marginalized.

He calls this action of nuns as a courageous one. He said, “The courage and high degree of sacrifice displayed by the nuns in the face of great danger is worthy of emulation. It is incredibly amazing that Sisters Rosela and Ann Frida have continued to walk in the footsteps of the late Mother Teresa who in 1987 managed to cross the iron curtain to assist the victims of Chernobyl nuclear gas tragedy.”

Praising Mother Teresa, he said, “Mother Teresa the founder of the Missionaries of Charity, should be highly commended for instilling in the nuns the true spirit of altruism, a virtue of servant leadership, our country and our world needs. And yet we refuse to call her our own by acts of politically expedient commission and omission.”

He further added that political leaders across the globe, as well as leadership in any form, may well absorb that the mandate they get is not to rule or towards exhibiting dominance but to govern for betterment of society and to serve the people. We will then have a better world in every sphere. Today this materialistic world desperately needs political leaders who will emulate the virtue of servant leadership exemplified by Mother Teresa if suffering humanity and the global tragedy of war unfolding before us is to be redeemed.
