Mother Teresa

Typed letter signed (‘M Teresa mc’), reading in part ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and strength is the command of the great God and He does not ask the impossible. Love of God is a fruit available at all seasons and within the reach of everyone. Try to come to know how much Jesus loves you. Read the Scriptures often and hear Jesus saying to you: “You are precious to Me.” If you come to believe deeply in God’s love for you, it would be natural for you to spend yourself in loving Him in others, in total forgetfulness of self. The more we empty ourselves, the more room we give God to fill us. The more you forget yourself, the more Jesus will think of you. The more you detach yourself from pride and love of comfort, the more attached Jesus will be to you. Try to find Jesus in the poor around you, and in reaching out to them, you go out of yourself and touch Jesus in them’, one page, some cancellations, some lines have been underlined in pencil, light folding marks, tall 8vo, Missionaries of Charity, Calcutta, July 1991.
