Thought for every day living

Sharing for the Journeysis-ellen-avatar

by Sr. Ellen Dunn



We so often want to be better and do better in our lives and our relationships. Here is a bit of wisdom from a ‘pro.’ Mother Teresa has only recently been officially recognized for her personal holiness. I found this idea of hers very practical for my every day living. See what you think . . .

Quote from Mother Teresa
Peace and war start within one’s own home. If we really want peace for the world, let us start by loving one another within our families. Sometimes it is hard for us to smile at one another. It is often difficult for the husband to smile at his wife or for the wife to smile at her husband. In order for love to be genuine, it has to be above all, a love for our neighbor. We must love those who are nearest to us, in our own family. From there, love spreads toward whoever may need us. It is easy to love those who live far away. It is not always easy to love those who live right next to us. It is easier to offer a dish of rice to meet the hunger of a needy person than to comfort the loneliness and the anguish of someone in our own home who does not feel loved.
