Rebecca Huber has always admired the selfless ministry of Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata.
“She proved that she really believes what she says,” said Rebecca, a 17-year-old junior at Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville. “She protected the lives of so many people – the unborn, the old and the crippled. She did so much.”
Mother Teresa was the inspiration for a piece of artwork Rebecca created that received national recognition at the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. Jan. 25. The poster features a pen-and-ink drawing of Mother Teresa with a quote from the founder of the Missionaries of Charity, part of which described motherhood as a gift of God to women.
The artwork won first place in the March for Life poster contest. Rebecca donated her $100 cash prize to Mount de Sales.
“Every person has the right to have a life,” said Rebecca, who participated in her fourth March for Life. “It’s the most important thing we should be defending today.”
Rebecca prays every week outside an abortion clinic in Catonsville. She also is a regular participant in the annual Maryland March for Life in Annapolis.
