Following Mother Teresa

It was a good week last week...a busy week...a productive week...

a week of growing in holiness...

and then I screwed it up on Sunday, the Lord's day.

I felt "put-upon", blew up at few people in the household and generally threw a littler "temper tantrum"...

all while getting ready to leave for Mass!!

I need Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta at times like this!

This powerhouse of a soul visible to the world only in a quiet tiny plain package, serving the poorest of the poor...

so in love with Jesus, even when he was so far away from her...

so here are her words of wisdom I plan to focus on this week...

We must have a real living determination to reach holiness.
I will be a saint means I will despoil myself of all that is not God;
I will strip my heart of all created things;
I will live in poverty and detachment;
I will denounce my will, my inclinations, my whims and fancies,
and make myself a willing slave to the will of God.

Amen Mother.
