Mother Teresa: true holiness

Saturday, May 25, 2019
    Feast of the Venerable Bede, Priest, Monk of Jarrow, Historian, 735
    Commemoration of Aldhelm, Abbot of Mamsbury, Bishop of Sherborne, 709
    “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.
    —John 4:34 (NIV)
    Make sure that you let God’s grace work in your souls by accepting whatever He gives you, and giving Him whatever He takes from you. True holiness consists in doing God’s will with a smile.
