Belonging... entirely...

“By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith,
I am a Catholic nun.  As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart,
I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus." - St Mother Teresa of Calcutta

"If we would be truly happy,
and find all that our heart longs for
let us go to Communion in faith, hope, charity,
humility, and complete abandonment to the will of Him
who comes as our food and our tremendous lover. 

For we cannot do better than to adopt the device of St Columban: 
Christi sumus, non nostri -
Let us belong to Christ, and not to ourselves."

M. Eugene Boylan, O. Cist. R
From This Tremendous Lover
