Mother Teresa: Poverty

​”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.”

—Mother Teresa

“Mary, give me your Heart: so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate; your Heart so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life and love Him as you love Him and serve Him in the distressing guise of the poor.” — Blessed Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa: Love

“Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor… Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God‘s kindness; kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.” -Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
