Sept. 22, 2011 Thursday: 25th Week in Ordinary (A)

I want to be a saint according to His Heart, meek and humble—therefore at these two virtues of Jesus I will try my best. My second resolution is to become an apostle of joy—to console the Sacred Heart of Jesus through joy. Please ask Our Lady to give me Her heart so that I may with greater ease fulfill His desire in me. I want to smile even at Jesus and so hide if possible the pain and the darkness of my soul even from Him … Let me go, and give myself for them, let me offer myself and those who will join me for those unwanted poor, the little street children, the sick, the dying, the beggars, let me go into their very holes and bring in their broken homes the joy and peace of Christ. 

-Mother Teresa
