This evening I read the April 1 issue of Our Sunday Visitor. In it was an article on Mother Teresa's spirituality which talked about her "Five Finger Gospel." It consists of five words from Matthew 25: "You Did it To Me." These words refer to Jesus telling his followers that "whenever you do something for the least of my brothers, you did it to me."
This is so important to remember and so easy to lose sight of. Whenever we serve those around us, whether they be our children, our spouses, our friends, or our worst enemy, we do it to and for Jesus.
