Quotes from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

by M. J. Joachim
There are times in life when we need to read and absorb the words of others, because their words are a reminder, comfort or inspiration to us. Today, I’m enjoying some words spoken and written by Mother Teresa, and I’d like to share a few of them with you.

There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread, but there are many more dying for a little love. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.

When you know how much God is in love with you, then you can only live your life radiating that love.

By becoming poor ourselves, by loving until it hurts, we become capable of loving more deeply, more beautifully, more wholly.

We have a right to be happy and peaceful. We have been created for this – we are born to be happy – and we can only find true happiness and peace when we are in love with God: there is joy in loving God, great happiness in loving Him.

Christ’s love is always stronger than the evil in the world, so we need to love and to be loved: it’s as simple as that.

Until next time, I bid you peace,

M. J.
