Mother Theresa’s Quotes

quotes from mother TheresaMother Theresa Quotes Episode 63

Have you read quotes from Mother Theresa? When my children were little we read about Mother Theresa’s life because she was, in essence, a living Saint. She went to Calcutta in India and helped the poor. But what made her remarkable among other things is that she didn’t just look at helping the poor, but the dying. One of the first people she rescued was a man lying in the gutter with maggots and in flit. She said that the Lord gave her the courage to pick him up – and she felt if she had not felt that urging and followed through she would not be able to continue her mission of helping others and eventually starting her own order of nuns.

We all carry our own burdens in life as did Mother Theresa, but we found out after she died that she felt she wasn’t hearing from God as she continued her journey like she did at the beginning.

As Mother Theresa didn’t stop her mission, her faith – even if she did not feel it the way she had as a younger nun did continue or she would have stopped her work!  Faith is a gift from God. We are all called but many do not hear.

In Matthew 28:20 Jesus said…

“…and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Just because we don’t hear the Lord or feel God’s presence, that does not mean you don’t have faith.

I thought I would share with you some of Mother Theresa’s quotes. If you can write them in your journal and think about the ones that speak to you!

Dear Lord, please help me to be the best I can be in this life. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I can be filled with your Love. I love you Lord, Jesus and I want to follow you each day and serve those in need—even if it is just my family. Please help me to take that first step and guide the rest and I pray for my intentions and those listening …. Please Lord grant us the prayers of our heart, and I pray this in Jesus Name. Amen.
