In 1631, concerns over Ward’s unconventional ideas and practices prompted Catholic authorities to temporarily disband the IBVM. After Ward’s death in 1645, however, the order gradually made a comeback. During the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, a number of new girls’ schools and convents opened across Europe. The revived order was considerably more conservative than in Ward’s day, though; members donned traditional religious habits and resided in enclosed convents, just like other Catholic nuns.

New York: Crossroad Publishing, 1998, p. 128. 56 Mother Teresa with the poor, sick, and forgotten of India began to appear regularly in Catholic publications. As the first year of the new decade drew to a close, Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity were about to enter a period of unprecedented international influence and fame. ” This meant that her congregation would answer directly to the Vatican rather than to the Archbishop of Calcutta. For the first time ever, the Missionaries of Charity would be able carry their work beyond India’s borders; only the Vatican could grant members of a Catholic religious order permission to live and labor in other countries.

With the money collected, the Missionaries of Charity converted a donated ambulance into a traveling medical dispensary. Staffed by members of the order as well as by volunteers, the mobile clinic went on weekly missions into Calcutta’s slums, bringing drugs, disinfectants, bandages, food, and other essential supplies to leprosy victims of all ages. “A Call Within a Call” Convinced that the lepers’ greatest problem was emotional— the feeling of being unloved and unwanted—Mother Teresa and her workers always made it a point to treat their disfigured patients with compassion and warmth.
