The Wisdom of Mother Teresa
Where to find peace in a fast paced world?
She was a servant of servants. She dedicated her life to serve the poorest of the poor. She cared for those the world casted out; she fed and helped them die with dignity. She transformed herself into a saint in the middle of those living in despair. She saw God daily through the eyes of the poor living in destitute. What can we learn from this meek and yet powerful saint?
1) If we pray, we will believe; if we believe, we will love; if we love, we will serve.
2) We are the wire and God is the electrical current that passes through us and that is the way to produce light to the world.
3) True love only comes from true communion with Christ. True love is the love that causes us pain that hurts, and yet brings us joy.
4) More people can do great things; few can do little things with great love. Giving is only effective when it hurts.
5) The fruit of silence is Prayer. The fruit of Prayer is Faith. The fruit of Faith is Love. The fruit of Love is Service. The fruit of Service is Peace.
6) Prayer is not asking, Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at his disposition, and listening to his voice the depth of your hearts.
7) Live each day doing your ordinary duties with extraordinary love and devotion. God demands us to be fruitful above being successful. The only sorrow in life is sin.
Be blessed, and then be a blessing to others
