Why I was off-line today.
I was fortunate to get up very early today to attend Mass latter in the morning at the Cathedral of St. Paul for the feast day of Blessed Mother Teresa. It was so awesome and beautiful, reverent and holy. It seemed to me that I heard very deeply in my heart that we must love one another and forgive one another. That the truth is all about love and being loved - that we are first loved by God - and that is how we are able to love. We must love one another. We must see Christ in one another. We need to forgive one another. If we have not love, we have nothing, we are the poorest of the poor... which in itself makes us lovable. I understood how far adrift I've gone from that one thing necessary, how I've lost sight of the immensity of the love of God, wasting my time on trifles and shadows. The joy of Mother Teresa seemed to fill the Cathedral, dispersing the darkest, gloomiest thoughts clouding my heart and once again it seemed I recognized how simple and pure the love of God is and how critical it is for us to love one another.
I'm convinced that Blessed Mother Teresa is very much the greatest saint of these modern times.
Pray for us Blessed Mother Teresa, obtain for us a great increase in love of God and our neighbor. Amen.
