Post 85-Happy Birthday Mother Teresa

Today is Mother Teresas birthday!I love Mother Teresa soo much and I am so excited to do my blog on her.Mother Teresa was born on August 27,1910 in Skopje, now capital of the Republic of Macedonia.She knew from the age of 12 that she wanted to take on a religious life.At the age of 18 she left her family and went to a convent(in Calcutta) to become a nun.She for 15 years and then decided to leave the convent because she wanted to live with the poverty and help the needy around her.She started a hospital and a school.She also started a missionary group and her help spread from then on not only to that community or country but to the world and that's why I love her.She didn't care about the political side of Roman Catholics and becoming a saint.She didn't care about any of that she just wanted to help the needy and the poor.She just wanted to bring love into the world and she surly did! She brought so much happiness,peace,and love to millions of people and will continue to forever.Thanks to her work.Today in honor of a wonderful persons birthday my quotes will be from her.Love you Mother Teresa!!

"Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies."-Mother Teresa

"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat."Mother Teresa

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."-Mother Teresa

"I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love."-Mother Teresa

"Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."-Mother Teresa

"We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls."-Mother Teresa

"Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do... but how much love we put in that action."-Mother Teresa

"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."-Mother Teresa

"Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home."-Mother Teresa

"Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own."-Mother Teresa

"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty."-Mother Teresa

"Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty."-Mother Teresa

"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one."-Mother Teresa

"Peace begins with a smile :)."-Mother Teresa

"Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God - the rest will be given."-Mother Teresa

"Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand."-Mother Teresa

"If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."-Mother Teresa

"We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop."-Mother Teresa

"Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work."-Mother Teresa

"Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness."-Mother Teresa
