Mother Teresa


O WE REALLY KNOW our poor? Do we really know the poor in our own house, in our own family? Maybe we are not hungry for a piece of bread. Maybe our children, our husband, our wife, are not hungry, are not naked, are not Return to "Paying Tribute to Mother Teresa of Calcutta" homeless, but are you sure that there is no one there who feels, unwanted, unloved? Where are your old father and mother? Where are they?...Let us look straight into our own families, for love begins at home. Do we really understand the poverty of Christ, the poverty of our poor in our own home, in our own communities? Never turn your back to the poor. For in turning your back to the poor you are turning it to Jesus Christ.
