St. Teresa of Calcutta

Trying to find a great quote by St Mother Teresa is like looking for that one perfect grain of sand on a Gulf coast beach.  (I gave up working on my art journal project because I couldn’t choose just one.)

She inspired me.  The Holy Spirit used her words to change me.  To draw me away from the pit of existential depression and to a joyful life of doing. 


This is it people!  The second greatest commandment.  You shall love your neighbor as yourself.  God’s law in one little sentence. But HOW do we do this overwhelming thing?  St Mother Teresa showed me how to start. 

Let us always greet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of LOVE.

Every time you smile at someone, it is an act of LOVE. 

Peace begins with a smile. 

I will never understand all the GOOD that a simple smile can accomplish. 

Make eye contact. Smile. It’s that easy.
