    Mother Teresa

    The same loving hand that has created you has created me.

    If he is your Father he must be my Father also.

    We all belong to the same family.

    Hindus, Muslims and all peoples are our brothers & sisters.

    They too are the children of God.

    Our work among the Hindus proclaims that God loves them.

    God has created them -- they are my brothers & sisters.

    Naturally I would like to give them the joy of what I believe,

    but that I cannot do; only God can.

    Faith is a gift of God, but God does not force himself.

    Christians, Muslims, Hindus, believers & nonbelievers,

    have the same opportunity with us to do works of love,

    have the same opportunity with us to share the joy of

    loving and come to realize God's presence.

    Hindus become better Hindus.

    Catholics become better Catholics.

    Muslims become better Muslims.

    "In Yemen, which is entirely a Muslim country, I asked one of the rich people to build a Masjid there. People needed a place to pray, I said to him. They are all Muslim brothers and sisters. They need to have a place where they can meet God."

    "At the Home for the Dying in Kalighat, a visitor wondered at the peace that pervaded everywhere. I said simply: God is here. Castes and creeds mean nothing. It does not matter that they are not of my faith."

    --Mother Teresa, from The Joy in Loving

    Let the beauty we love be what we do.
    There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.

    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
    Mother Teresa

    I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.

    From Mother Teresa

    • Love is doing small things with great love.

    • Do not wait for leaders. Do it alone, person to person.

    • Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

    • We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.

    • There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives--the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family. Find them. Love them.

    • There should be less talk. A preaching point is not a meeting point.

    • The dying, the cripple, the mental, the unwanted, the unloved-- they are Jesus in disguise.

    • In the West there is loneliness, which I call the leprosy of the West. In many ways it is worse than our poor in Calcutta. (Commonweal, Dec 19, 1997)

    • It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving.

    • The poor give us much more than we give them. They're such strong people, living day to day with no food. and they never curse, never complain. We don't have to give them pity or sympathy. We have so much to learn from them.

    • I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper's wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?
