Tip #1 from Mother Teresa

June 6, 2017

“Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me.”
-Matthew 18:5

Live in the present moment.

Father Peter explains that Mother Teresa had a special way about her. Whenever you were in her presence, the worlds around you fell apart.

The reason this happened is because every single person that Mother Teresa encountered was Jesus to her, and she would give Jesus her full attention.
Fr. Peter says that when standing in her presence, he knew that she was convinced that Jesus Christ was in her presence. He knew it because he always knew that he had her full attention.

Live It! Practical tip for this week: Bring that spirit into your home. Be present with your spouse, and be present with your children because they are the face of Jesus Christ in your home.

Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance wherever I go.
Flood my soul with Your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly,
that my life may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in
contact with may feel Your presence in my soul.
Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus!
Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine,
so to shine as to be a light to others.
The light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine.
It will be you, shining on others through me.
Let me thus praise You the way You love best, by shining on those around me.
Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example,
by the catching force of the sympathetic influence of what I do,
the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You. Amen.
