LElDO32fPlE0035 lELP ADVANCED LEVEL (SUPPLEMENTARY EXAM) NOVEMBER 2005 SECTION C: READING COMPREHENSION AND VOCABULARY [30 MARKS] Instructions : For questions 41-57, read the passage carefully. Answer ALL the questions that follow. Mother Teresa When I first saw her nine years ago, she was a bent and wrinkled 76-year— old woman who was plainly very tired. She was then visiting one of the many houses of her Order in India. There were hundreds more in 71 countries around the world where her Missionaries of Charity work among the poorest of the poor. It was clear that Mother Teresa, like any great leader, had her own management 5 style and it was a successful one to feed 126 000 Victims of leprosy and 22 000 dying destitutes. She explained, “God can move you anytime to serve a need and you don’t organize too much.” Still, I was greatly amazed at how much one woman had achieved a world recognition, a 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, and a finding of a religious order 10 that, in less than 40 years, had soared from a membership of one to some 3000 sisters and 400 brothers. I asked her repeatedly how she went about it, how she decided on another leper centre, a mobile medical clinic and a new missionary house, and how she planned her numerous trips locally and overseas. It is God’s work that has done it, not my work,” explained Mother Teresa softly. “Evidence 15 has it that humanly speaking, it is not possible. He did it. How do I plan my trips? Well, I do not really plan them. I make the trips according to the needs; as many trips as necessary.” That explained why Mother Teresa was always on the move. For two years I had been trying to get Mother Teresa to set a firm date to see me in 20 Calcutta, that tragic, overwhelmed city where her work began. She was warm in letters and telephone calls, but hard to pin down. She had been travelling all over India and Europe. Then she darted off to Ethiopia and Sudan during their famine. Next, she was in the Philippines, Los Angeles and at the United Nations in New York. Once I tracked her to the Missionaries of Charity House in Toronto, called 25 her and almost pleaded for an appointment. Eventually, I went to India on an assignment and, en route, missed Mother Teresa by one day, in the neighbouring nation of Bangladesh. Mother Teresa’s first school was a bare patch of ground, where she wrote Bengali letters in the dirt with a stick, for five or six children. The slum families 30 took notice, and some tables appeared, then benches and a blackboard. Then, more children. Observing what was happening, Mother Teresa saw a basic need. She began to address the need directly, simply, with what there was. The peeple who were being assisted, and the wider community, saw the good that was happening and helped. So, it had gone on over the years. Gradually, Mother 35 Teresa was joined by other sisters. They begged for food and medicine, for Spare land and shacks for dispensaries or schools. According to Mother Teresa, she and her missionaries taught by Continued... LKWMUGSI'ZIAMIF[JASH/CT/SA 7/1 I LE10032/PIE0035 [ELF ADVANCED LEVEL (SUPPLEMENTARY EXAM) NOVEMBER 2005 example, the one essential that God would have the world do about poverty — sharing. She said, “We are to use the gifts that God has given to people who have, to share with those who have not.” Indeed, the power of this woman’s lesson of love can be seen clearly in the Spiritual family of the Co-Workers of Mother Teresa, which unites some three million people in 70 countries, in what she had called “the most disorganised organisation in the world.” They described themselves primarily as carriers of God’s love to the poorest of the poor in their neighbourhoods. They visited the elderly, the sick, the imprisoned and the lonely as well as worked in soup kitchens and homes for the destitute. They also helped the Missionaries of Charity provide food, clothing, medicine, ambulances and buildings for the needy. In all of Mother Teresa’s houses, timetables were strict and life was lived by bells. Mother Teresa created this spartan schedule and shared it, with the only exception that she worked after all were in bed, until at least 11 pm. and very often until 1 am. She was up again at 4.40 sharp. “She has a very bad heart condition. I know she endures a lot of pain but she makes no exemptions for herself. She’s still the first for morning prayers and she still moves like lightning,” says one of the sisters. Adapted from Courtney Tower, Mother Teresa ’3 Work 01‘ Grace.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
