Mother Teresa: kindness and mercy

Tuesday, September 29, 2015
    Feast of Michael & All Angels
    Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?
    —1 Corinthians 3:16 (NIV)
    Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness—kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting. In the slums we are the light of God’s kindness to the poor. To children, to the poor, to all who suffer and are lonely, give always a happy smile. Give them not only your care but also your heart. Because of God’s goodness and love every moment of our life can be the beginning of great things. Be open, ready to receive and you will find him everywhere. Every work of love brings a person face to face with God.

    See also 1 Cor. 3:16; John 15:16; Rom. 6:3; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:19-22; Gal. 5:22-23; 1 Pet. 2:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, make me Your messenger of love to those You send my way.
