Mother Knows Best

I am reading the book “The Wisdom of a Saint”, a compilation of stories about Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I quote this passage which struck me tremendously:

In an age of materialistic atheism, Mother Teresa points to Christ as our guide and goal. An American journalist once saw her washing a man who was covered with sores and he exclaimed: “I would not do that for a million dollars!” Mother Teresa replied immediately: “Neither would I”.

It made me ponder about my work of the home, my care for my family, my often unappreciated sacrifices. Neither would I do it for the money. It is all done for Love.


Mother Teresa, truly inspiring.
