a call to the heart
Mother Teresa's teachings:
“And that’s when he saw the sign over the doorway in Mother Teresa’s handwriting: ‘You can do no great things – only small things with great love.’ […] Of that moment, he says: My heart melted. It dawned on me that serving others is not about how much I know. It’s about attitude and availability to do whatever is needed – with love.” (Encounters with a Saint, Dean Nelson)
"'I saw people come to her with frowns and scowls and go away with radiant faces. She had the gift of touching hearts with peace, of anointing them with 'the oil of gladness' (Ps 45:7). Mother Teresa was given the grace to understand that the biggest disease in the world today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for, and deserted by everybody.'" (Mother Teresa - Her Life)
"This reflects the light she was in people's lives, no matter what they might have been going through. She expressed her love for others through her acts of kindness and her love of God. Overall, Mother Teresa's loving heart and willing hands made her a hero to anyone who has felt alone or needed to be lifted up." (Alison, My Hero Website)
Mother Teresa spent her whole life in the service of others and teaching about love and peace. We just need to follow her! Join us and come and help us build a better world!
