A LESSON FROM MOTHER TERESA
If you’ve ever heard me speak, then you know of my love and admiration for St. Teresa of Calcutta.
She was prayerful, humble, knowledgeable, and feisty (the perfect recipe for sanctity).
And over and over again she would remind her sisters what it takes to be a saint––”God does not call us to be successful, but to be faithful.”
See, for Mother, it wasn’t success in our worldly endeavors that would get us to Heaven (plenty of saints were not successful by society’s standards). Rather, for Mother, it was putting our faith in God that saves us.
Let’s ask God today to give us this faith that saves.
Friends, be confident in Christ’s mercy and love.
LEARNING FROM THE SAINTS
“In my deepest wound I saw your glory, Lord, and it dazzled me.” (St. Augustine)
