Linda Schaefer first met Mother Teresa on June 15, 1995 while on assignment for the Atlanta Catholic archdiocese of Atlanta. Well accustomed to covering news events with CNN and AP, nothing could have prepared her for that initial meeting with Mother Teresa. Poised and ready with her cameras on the airport tarmac for Mother Teresa’s arrival on a corporate jet, Linda felt that somehow this encounter would change her life forever. After greeting Archbishop John Donoghue, the tiny nun turned and walked straight towards Linda. She enfolded Linda’s hands in her own and invited her to “Come and See.” That invitation led Linda on a 23-year journey of documenting the legacy and work of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity.
