Quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta

Some quotes from St. Teresa of Calcutta (canonized today) from Praying with Mother Teresa: Prayers, Insights, and Wisdom of St. Teresa of Calcutta

Love to pray. For prayer gives a clean heart. And a clean heart can see God.

Everything starts from prayer. Without asking God for love, we cannot possess love, and still less are we able to give it to others.

Each individual person has been created to love and to be loved.  

Start by making your own homes places where peace, happiness, and love abound, through your love for each member of your family and for your neighbors. 

My God, give me courage now, this moment, to persevere in doing Your will.

To all who suffer and are lonely, give always a happy smile.

Smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at - do it for peace. 

Put yourself completely under the influence of Jesus, so that He may think His thoughts in your mind and do His work through your hands, for you will be all-powerful with Him who strengthens you.
