Love is the Answer


This simple woman changed the world forever.  How did she do it?  She knew what love was and wasn’t afraid to give it to anyone who needed it.

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God                                        ― Mother Teresa

Shouldn’t we be more like her?
