Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Mother Teresa
One more thing: Jesus seems to tell us today that we must turn our back on the very people he tells us we must love. It doesn't seem to make sense! I don't think Christ is talking about absolutes in today's gospel, but about priorities. Where are my priorities? Do I let people or things get in the way of living the gospel? Mother Teresa lived the gospel through her love of people, but only because her love for God came first. Her work was exhausting, yet she didn't let her love falter when she became tired.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for your everlasting love. Help me to imitate that love to my children, especially when I am tired. In your name I pray, Amen. Mother Teresa, pray for me.
