The Most Terrible Poverty

“The Most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved” – Mother Teresa

He Prayed

“And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose and went out to a lonely place, and there he prayed. And Simon and those who were with him pursued him, and they found him and said to him, “Every one is searching for you.” And he said to them, “Let us go on to the next towns, that I may preach there also; for that is why I came out.” – Mark 1:35-38 ( Jesus of Nazareth )

 

“We know well, in fact, that prayer should not be taken for granted. It is necessary to learn how to pray, as it were acquiring this art ever anew; even those who are very advanced in spiritual life always feel the need to learn from Jesus, to learn how to pray authentically. We receive the first lesson from the Lord by his example. The Gospels describe Jesus to us in intimate and constant conversation with the Father: it is a profound communion of the One who came into the world not to do his will but that of the Father who sent him for the salvation of man.”

Dedication

Dedication is the foundation of commitment, without it a believer is unable to offer God anything else.

Dwelling of God

“God dwells in our midst, in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar.” – St. Maximilian Kolbe

The greatest Companion

 

Keep in mind that God is your greatest companion because no matter how imperfect you are and no matter what happens in your life, God will still be there to give you the greatest love you’ve always wanted.
