Fruitful practice

Still life of Flowers and Grapes Encircling a Monstrance in a Niche ~ Jan Van Kessel

"When the Sisters are exhausted,
up to their eyes in work;
when all seems to go awry,
they spend an hour in prayer
before the Blessed Sacrament.

This practice has never failed to bear fruit.
They experience peace and strength."

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

August 26, 1910 ~ September 5, 1997

“Just allow people to see Jesus in you to see how you pray, to see how you lead a pure life to see how you deal with your family to see how much peace there is in your family. Then you can look straight into their eyes and say, ‘This is the way.’ You speak from life, you speak from experience.” ~ Bl Mother Teresa of Calcutta
