Mother Teresa on Spirituality

For today's WORSHIP QUOTE OF THE WEEK, we have several short sentences from a woman of immense faith and incredible Christian love and service, Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997). 

"Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart." [Sounds like an echo of Elijah and the "still small voice" in 1 Kings 19. See also Psalm 46:10; "Be still and know . . ."]

"If we pray, we will believe; if we believe, we will love; if we love, we will serve." [Do you think she had memorized Matthew 25:40? "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."]

"Let every action of mine be something beautiful for God."

"I follow Christ: Jesus is my God/ Jesus is my Spouse/ Jesus is my Life/ Jesus is my only Love/ Jesus is my All in All/ Jesus is my Everything. Because of this I am never afraid."


Lord, grant us faith that leads to your kind of love; grant us love that leads us to serve you and others for Christ's sake, Amen!

Have a great week.
