  • Mother Teresa… a leader who delivers love.

    Mother Teresa… a leader who delivers love.

    We read a lot about Mother Teresa in our house because she so easily articulates how to make a difference in the world.  When I feel lost, confused, lonely or negative I always turn to her words.  And every night before our children go to sleep, we read a quote or two from her.  Here are some of our favorites:

    “Live simply, so that others may simply live.”

    “What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.”

    “If you can’t feed a hundred people, feed just one.”

    “A life not lived for others is not a life.”

    “Intense love does not measure it just gives. ”

    I also reference the commencement speech she gave to the Harvard class of 1982.

    My favorite line from the speech:  ”My prayer for you is that you grow in that love for each other. That you grow in that likeness of Christ, in that holiness of Christ. Holiness is not the luxury of the few; it is a simple duty for you and for me. And where does it begin? Right at home. And if God comes into your life, into your family, to take your son or your daughter for Himself, pray for them. Help them give their hearts to God. For it is such a wonderful, wonderful gift of God, that God chooses your child to be His own, to be only, all for Him. It is wonderful to see and I’m very grateful.”

    The 21st Chromosome gives you wings…

    My brothers are angels.  I’m certain of it.  They exude the true meaning of compassion, kindness and love.

    I think God gives the extra chromosome to those who deserve wings.

Mother of 15 children who lived in a tree house

Mrs. Anikuzhikattil, a mother of 15 children, six of whom are priests and four of whom are nuns, cared for her children while living in a tree and avoiding attacks from wild elephants.  Also, one of her children suffered from Gillen Barry syndrome in which he was bed ridden for 15 years.  She single handedly for 15 years looked after him without even a single bed sore on him.
