This is the original version of Mother Teresa’s “Do it anyway” posted here written by Dr. Kent M. Keith. It is surprising to know that it was part of booklet for student leaders. Mother Teresa’s was re-written for spiritual purposes. In the real world, this is … Continue reading →
He asked a question: How come you never become a nun? Thoughtfully I responded: I did not hear the call. We were discussing about Mother Teresa when she a heard call on the train on her way to Calcutta, “I … Continue reading →
“This Home for the Dying is dimly lit by small windows high up in the walls, and Ken was adamant that filming was quite impossible there. We had only one small light with us, and to get the place adequately lighted in the time at our disposal was quite impossible. It was decided that, nonetheless, Ken should have a go, but by way of insurance we took, as well, some film in an outside courtyard where some of the inmates were sitting in the sun. In the processed film, the part taken inside was bathed in a particularly beautiful soft light, whereas the part taken outside was rather dim and confused…Mother Teresa’s Home for the Dying is overflowing with love, as one senses immediately on entering it.

Impromptu party for YaYa sisterhood last night. They loved it. Gave them all the left over. Just like I said, I only eat the Pope’s nose.
As a reward for the sisters gobbling the turkey, they each received a bottle of wine that I won at United Way and then some. And then some means, unburdened me with gifts I received that I have no need and giving clothes that that they are eyeing for a long time. They always enjoy coming here empty-handed and going home with party favours.
The Master held that no words were bad if they were used in an right context. When he was told that one of his disciples was given to swearing, he remarked, “Profanity has been known to offer spiritual relief denied to prayer.” — Anthony de Mello, SJMORSEL: If you judge people, you have no time to love them. — Mother TeresaBONUS MORSEL: Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny. — Frank Outlaw
Returning from 2012 Pilgrimage, I applied something I learned. I changed my signature sign off with Pax Tecum and sometimes added this characters _/\_ . Pax Tecum is a Latin word for Peace Be With You. It was quite funny because … Continue reading →
