Do not pursue spectacular deeds

Do not pursue spectacular deeds.  What matters is the gift of your self, the degree of love that you put into each one of your actions. 

When someone tells me that what the sisters do is irrelevant, that they limit themselves to things that are little less than ordinary, I reply that even if they helped only one person, that would be reason enough for their work.  Jesus would have died for one person, for one sinner. 

He did not forsake his works of charity because the Pharisees and others rejected him and tried to spoil his Father’s work. 

Suffering is nothing by itself.  But suffering shared with the passion of Christ is a wonderful gift, the most beautiful gift, a token of love. 

Joy was the Virgin’s strength.  Only joy could give her the strength to walk without getting tired up to the hill country of Judea in order to carry out a servant’s work. -Mother Teresa
