I am in the midst of reading a couple of books on Blessed Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa in My Own Words is a book of her quotes on different subjects in the Christian faith.


”Holiness does not consist in doing extraordinary things. It consists in accepting, with a smile, what Jesus sends us. It consists in accepting and following the will of God.”

“Holiness is not the luxury of a few. It is everyone’s duty: yours and mine.”

“We should go out to meet people. Meet the people who live afar and those who live very close by. Meet the materially poor or the spiritually poor.”

“The fact of death should not sadden us. The only thing that should sadden us is to know that we are not saints.”

“He (Jesus) asked–”will you do this for me?” Everything was His–I had only to surrender myself to His plan–to His will–Today His work has grown because it is He not I that do it through me.”
