Mother Teresa laughing; "Faith in action is love, and love in action is service. By transforming that faith into living acts of love, we put ourselves in contact with God Himself, with Jesus our Lord."
In her own words, Mother Teresa tells of the simple joy of following Jesus and surrendering fully to him. Her life of radical poverty and wholehearted dedication to the poorest of the poor forms the heart of this inspiring surrender to God and to those most in need. It is part of the genius of Mother Teresa that she finds ways to tailor her spirituality to people from every state and circumstance in life.
Mother Teresa said: "If you ever feel distressed during your day - call upon Our Lady - just say this simple prayer: 'Mary of Jesus, please be a mother to me now'. I must admit, this prayer has never failed me".
