Don’t hesitate to reach out and get in touch with one of our many ministries.
As I honor and pray for those in my family who have gone before me, I can’t help but remember the love and faith that they passed to me. How can I embody their wonderful traits to help me better serve the kingdom of God?
Mother Teresa has said:
“It is not enough for us to say: ‘I love God, but I do not love my neighbor.’ Saint John says that you are a liar if you say you love God and you don’t love your neighbor. (1 John 4:20) How can you love God whom you do not see, if you do not love your neighbor whom you see, whom you touch, with whom you live? And so this is very important for us to realize that love, to be true, has to hurt.”
“To be able to love one another, we must pray much, for prayer gives a clean heart and a clean heart can see God in our neighbor. If now we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten how to see God in one another. If each person saw God in his neighbor, do you think we would need guns and bombs?”
