Babies as Teachers


From Mother Teresa: Her Essential Wisdom  edited by Carol Kelly-Gangi
1.  “Try to put in the hearts of your children a love for home. Make them long to be with their families.  So much sin could be avoided if our people really loved their homes.”
2.  “It is easy to smile at people outside your own home.  It is so easy to take care of the people that you don’t know well.  It is difficult to be thoughtful and kind and to smile and be loving to your own in the house day after day, especially when we are tired and in a bad temper or a bad mood.  We all have these moments and that is the time that Christ comes to us in a distressing disguise.”

3.  “Sometimes people can hunger for more than bread.  It is possible that our children, our husband, our wife, do not hunger or bread, do not need clothes, do not lack a house.  But are we equally sure that none of thtem feels alone, abandoned, neglected, needing some affection?  That, too, is poverty.”
