woman of immense faith and incredible Christian love and service, Mother
Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997).
"Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in
the silence of the heart." [Sounds like an echo of Elijah and the "still
small voice" in 1 Kings 19. See also Psalm 46:10; "Be still and know . . ."]
"If we pray, we will believe; if we believe, we will love; if we love,
we will serve." [Do you think she had memorized Matthew 25:40? "I tell you
the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me."]
"Let every action of mine be something beautiful for God."
"I follow Christ: Jesus is my God/ Jesus is my Spouse/ Jesus is my Life/
Jesus is my only Love/ Jesus is my All in All/ Jesus is my Everything.
Because of this I am never afraid."
[Lord, grant us faith that leads to your kind of love; grant us love that
leads us to serve you and others for Christ's sake, Amen!]
Have a great week,
