Mother Teresa

Once a priest gave Mother Teresa this advice (as she was trying to discern whether something was truly God’s will or just her own), and if it was good enough for her, it’s good enough for me. Take courage, dear hearts.

joy should be the compass with which we make our life’s decisions. If the thought of doing something brings us great joy and a deep sense of peace, then that is what God is calling us to do. If, on the other hand, the thought of doing something brings us anxiety and sadness or fills our soul with fear and hesitation, then most likely that is not what God is calling us to do.”

amen and amen.
