Happy New Year! A couple of items from a daily flip calendar of thoughts and writings from Mother Teresa for December 29 and 30; plus a prayer for December 31 from the same calendar titled "Heart of Joy":
** Each time anyone comes in contact with us,
they must become different and better people
because of having met us.
We must radiate God's love.
** Jesus wants to live his life in you,
to look through your eyes,
walk with your feet, love with your heart.
Dear Lord,
Shine through me,
and be so in me that every soul
I come in contact with may feel your presence
in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me,
but only you, O Lord! Stay with me,
then I shall begin to shine as you do;
so to shine as to be a light to others....
Let me thus praise you in the way you love best,
by shining on those around me.
~~ Cardinal Newman
