Do Something Beautiful for God - The Essential Teachings of Mother Teresa

April 2 – Maybe there is a rich person who has no one to visit him; he has plenty of other things, he is nearly drowned in them, but there is not that touch and he needs your touch.

April 3 – The fruit of silence is prayer, the fruit of prayer is faith, the fruit of faith of love, the fruit of love is service, the fruit of service is peace.

April 4 – Father, God is a merciful Father. God is all powerful and He Can take care of us. God is rich in mercy and slow to anger. God is with us. God is in your heart, God is thoughtful. God is faithful. God is purity Himself. God is light. God is truth. God is joy. God is so good to us. God is a faithful lover. God is so generous and so wonderful.

April 5 – We have been created to love and be loved, and God has become man to make it possible for us to love as He loved us. He makes Himself the hungry one, the naked one, the homeless one, the sick one, the one in prison, the lonely one, the unwanted one...

April 6 – On the Cross Jesus said, “I thirst.” He was not asking for something to drink. When they offered Him vinegar He didn't drink it... Very often we offer Jesus a bitter drink too. This bitterness comes from the depths of hearts and wells up in our words. When we give this bitterness to each another, we give it to Jesus.

April 7 – You need a deep freedom to be like Jesus. See, He could have been born in a palace, yet He chose to be poor...Are we so free that we can be completely naked with Jesus there on the cross?

April 8 – I knew that God wanted something from me. I was only twelve years old, living with my parents in Yugoslavia, when I first sense a desire.
