Mother Teresa quotes
"Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies."
"Everybody today seems to be in such a terrible rush, anxious for greater developments and greater riches and so on, so that children have very little time for their parents. Parents have very little time for each other, and in the home begins the disruption of peace of the world."
"Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. " (how sweet is that?)
"I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world."
"I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God. "
"Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work."
"We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. "
This last one, as short as it is, taught me alot about finding God. I hope you like these.
Ok ok, now totally unrelated to this post I have to send out a CONGRATULATIONS to "4HisChurch" who is now Married !!!! After having a husband for 22 years of course. Does that sound confusing? You have to read her post to know what i'm talking about. =)
