How to reach the poor

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

According to Mother Teresa, to reach the poor, the inner life must drive the activity of the exterior life.

To be united to Him completely, we need be poor—free from all—here comes the poverty of the Cross—Absolute Poverty—and to be able to see God in the poor. Angelic Chastity—and to be able to be always at His disposal.—Cheerful Obedience.

The “interior must become the main power of the exterior.”

For if they are not in love with God—they will not be able to lead this life of continual immolation for souls.

I insisted on obedience, cheerful, prompt, simple and blind. I assured her that she could never make a mistake if she obeyed.
