One day as he began his daily prayer, a holy hermit saw passing by, a cripple, a mother begging for food for her pathetically malnourished child, and the victim of what must have been a very severe beating. Seeing them, the holy man turned to God and said, “Great God! How is it that such a loving Creator can see so much suffering, and yet do nothing about it?” And deep within his heart he heard God reply, “I have done something about it. I MADE YOU.” (Jack McArdle)
The motivating factor of Mother Teresa’s courageous and daring act of charity, is that she wants to be with Christ, to work with Christ and to work like Christ.
And many times in life, we tend to forget this motivation due to many things that the world is offering us now, things that are offering nothing but empty hopes and false promises. Jesus has done something. He came to serve and not to be served. SO what can we do?
