Give more; Love more!

Blessed Mother Teresa is one of the greatest saints when it comes to teaching us how to love.

Mother Teresa Praying“There are thousands of people who would love to have what we have, yet God has chosen us to be where we are today to share the joy of loving others. He wants us to love one another, to give ourselves to each other until it hurts. It does not matter how much we give, but how much love we put into our giving.”
