This quote from Mother Teresa was in Living Faith today:
And how will you find Jesus? He has made it so easy for us. "Love one another as I have loved you." If we have gone astray, we have the beautiful sacrament of confession. We go to confession a sinner full of sin. We come from confession a sinner without sin by the greatness of the mercy of God. No need for us to despair. No need to commit suicide. No need for us to be discouraged - no need if we have understood the tenderness of God's love.
You are precious to him. He loves you, and he loves you so tenderly that he has carved you on the palm of his hand. These are God's words written in the Scripture. You know that. Remember that when your heart feels restless, when your heart feels hurt, when you heart feels like breaking - then remember, "I am precious to him."
