Mother Teresa

1910 - 1997

"Do small things with great love". - Mother Teresa
"Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person". - Mother Teresa
"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten
we belong to each other". - Mother Teresa

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today.
Let us begin". - Mother Teresa

"Money is a success indicator. It is also a failure indicator,
Mother Teresa excepted". - Gary North


People are often unreasonable,
Illogical and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,
People may accuse
You of selfish motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
You will win some false friends
And some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
People may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building,
Someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
They may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
People will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
And it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
It is between you and God;
It never was between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa

"So consider what you can do for the Lord. For you can serve him through many occupations and even walk the path of sainthood as a Mother Teresa.

" . . . As a young girl in Albania, Teresa knew that God was in pain and she wanted to walk in the way of the Good Physician to alleviate that pain where God's hurt was greatest. So she answered El Morya's call to serve the poorest of the poor in Calcutta. As Malcolm Muggeridge explains in his book, Something Beautiful for God: 'This was the end of her biography and the beginning of her life; in abolishing herself she found herself, by virtue of that unique Christian transformation, manifested in the Crucifixion and the Resurrection, whereby we die in order to live.'

"Yet, more than living, Mother Teresa radiated life. She 'lived so closely with her Lord that the same enchantment clung about her that sent the crowds chasing after him in Jerusalem and Galilee, and made his mere presence seem a harbinger of healing.'

"Mother Teresa did not begin her mission in the streets. She taught for a time at the Loreto convent school in Calcutta. There she served happily and acquired loving friends. It was only after chancing upon some of Calcutta's poorest areas that she realized her 'call within a call,' as she put it . . . The only impediment to her new vocation was the happiness and happy relationships it required her to relinquish. In deference to ecclesiastical authority, she patiently waited two years to be released from her vows, and with but a few rupees in her pocket she began her ministry.

"Muggeridge, who lived a European lifestyle in Calcutta as a newspaperman in the thirties, found life there barely tolerable. When he learned of Mother Teresa's move, he was deeply affected. He writes: 'To choose, as Mother Teresa did, to live in the slums of Calcutta, amidst all the dirt and disease and misery, signified a spirit so indomitable, a faith so intractable, a love so abounding, that I felt abashed.'

"Starting with nothing, she cheerfully went to serve those with less than nothing. Teresa counsels, 'Make sure that you let God's grace work in your souls by accepting whatever he gives you, and giving him whatever he takes from you. True holiness consists in doing God's will with a smile.'

"Indeed, if you think a lack of money can detract from your givingness, think again. 'What the poor need, Mother Teresa was fond of saying, even more than food and clothing and shelter (though they need these, too, desperately), is to be wanted. It is the outcast state their poverty imposes upon them that is the most agonizing.'

"Criticism of Mother Teresa is often directed at the insignificant scale of the work she and the Sisters undertake by comparison with the need . . . But Christianity is not a statistical view of life. That there should be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over all the hosts of the just, is an anti-statistical proposition. Likewise with the work of [Mother Teresa's] Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa is fond of saying that welfare is for a purpose - an admirable and a necessary one - whereas Christian love is for a person. The one is about numbers, the other about a man who was also God.' "


"Please don't kill the child. I want the child. Please give me the child. I am willing to accept any child who would be aborted and to give that child to a married couple who will love the child and be loved by the child. From our children's home in Calcutta alone, we have saved over 3,000 children from abortion. These children have brought such love and joy to their adoptive parents and have grown up so full of love and joy."

Mother Teresa

"Go, then, from the poorest of the poor with Mother Teresa and move on to those levels where you can appeal to the high and the mighty who may come and assist those who have very stressful conditions. Think upon this, beloved, and assess the planetary home.

"Do what the Mother of the Flame has told you to do, and that is to come into action on behalf of the children. To come into action - yes, beloved, to do so from the very lowest level of life, scarcely breathing, scarcely alive, to those who can work magnificent change, tremendous change for the beautification and the beatification of souls.

"Let us embrace the poor. Let us in part know the path of Mother Teresa and also realize that ours is another path, a path that we can do a great deal with through technology, through the mass media, through sending our publications and books throughout the world and then ultimately sending our emissaries. Nothing is impossible to the Lord. Nothing is impossible to Mighty Victory and his legions. Nothing is impossible to the seven archangels as you invoke them nine times each day."


"It was in Calcutta that we visited Mother Teresa. This was long before she became the well-known figure that she is today. I remember her cool, shady, tiled open-air pavilion lined with hundreds of grass mats, prayer rugs and beds for the sick and dying, who were cared for so tenderly by the nuns.

"It was indeed a touching sight to see the nuns in their immaculate blue-and-white habits carrying endless buckets of water to cool and cleanse their pathetic patients. I remember that Mother Teresa said she did not try to influence her patients' religious beliefs; it was enough just to love and care for them."

I AM the Witness

"Accept yourself as a child of God. As Mother Teresa would say: 'Each one is made in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, you and all children of God are worthy of love. All have a right to love.' Such is the message of the Mother of Calcutta and such is the message of the Divine Mother.

"As you recognize yourself in that image and likeness and give no power to your own sin or to another's, so you will enter in to the joy of the mantra and you will see the power that will come to you. But then there will also come the testing of Mara, who will say to you: 'See what power you have with the mantra. Now use it against this one and that one who has wronged you.' "


"Over twenty thousand babies worldwide are being aborted every day. You simply cannot stand by any longer and watch this happen. You must do something and you must do it in a big way, as Mother Teresa has done something in a big way.

"Be proactive as she is proactive and has pleaded: Give me the children. I will take them. I will not allow them to be aborted. I will place them in good homes. Just give them to me. Do not abort them. I will take them.

"And in so doing she is galvanizing a world. Can you not also do this, beloved?"

Mother Mary

"There is no more important achievement for those who desire the Holy Spirit and its gifts, even one at a time, than to be able to offer to others perpetual love, perpetual comfort, perpetual sweetness, perpetual helpfulness, compassion and charity. Charity is a word that means self-givingness. As Mother Teresa has said, 'Give until it hurts.'

Maha Chohan

"You do not give to the poor for the sake of merit or that all men may behold your charity. You give to the poor because you say: 'There but for the grace of God go I. I will help my brothers and my sisters. Yes, I will give 10 percent of my wealth annually to support orphanages, hospitals and schools. Yes, I will follow in the footsteps of Mother Teresa and give of myself for the care of these children.' "

Saint Germain

"So, in the sweetness and the gentleness of all Buddhas out of all octaves, I seal you in the flame of compassion and charity, remembering the words of the precious Nada, 'I give you my love, for all else I have already given away.'

"Let this be your motto, beloved. Do not hold your hand closed tightly to hold on to your possessions, but open your hand and your heart and give and give and give.

"And the Light shall increase in your heart with each gift you give to another whose paucity of consciousness perceives a need for material things whereas you need not have them in such abundance or duplication.

"Value the things of the Spirit. Continue to give. For I tell you a secret: Giving is what makes the threefold flame flower of the heart grow and grow and grow. The more you give, the more the Light does flow.

"And I will tell all of you who seek this and that and the next recourse for healing that your healing is in the Christ-flame and in the seed of the Buddha within.

"Thus in love discover that all ailments are healed because you bring all thingsby the threefold flame that you have expandedinto the balance of the five elements and the Five Dhyani Buddhas.

"Now picture us, one perched on each of your shoulders, one in the heart, one above the head and one beneath the feet."

"Thus, we desire to bring here many souls of Light who have disciplined themselves in other traditions, such as those who have mastery in meditation or service, such as the sisters who serve with Mother Teresa in Calcutta.

"Yes, beloved, this little woman had the courage to stand before the president, who is pro-choice, and to challenge all those who deny life through abortion and to champion the right to life of the unborn. This is something, beloved! Such courage denotes one who is an emissary, in her own right, of the Brotherhood - one who is fearless to stand before the leader of the most powerful nation in the world and to make that one uncomfortable. And suddenly the consciousness of the whole world changes because they have listened to the Mother of Calcutta!

"This, beloved, shows the power of the sacred fire and of fohat that it is possible for you to garner in every chakra, that is possible for you to release even in quiet yet firm words. You are all mothers and fathers, even if but of your own inner child. Yet in the larger sense you are fathers and mothers of the world."


In her lecture 'Tales of Heroism,' in a segment about Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Elizabeth C. Prophet said:

"The need to withdraw, to be alone with God, . . . that's the space we all need, and we fill that space with realms of light, with beauty, with energies that are part of our causal body. It's not empty space and it's not necessarily down here at the solar plexus. It's a part of these rings upon rings upon rings [of the causal body, depicted on the Chart of the Presence] behind me. Of course, they're not rings; they're spheres.

"And that quietness, that need to withdraw, to be alone with God - that is the moment when you go into the great causal body that is yours and the great spheres of light. For Mother Teresa, withdrawing, praying, being alone with God was as important as her work. So make it as important as your work, because one day each one of you is going to ascend to this great beautiful causal body that we're looking at, that we can hardly imagine, it is so stupendous and so beautiful . . . "

"Every day we start with a clean white page in the Book of Life. You are the author of what will be written on each page of your Life. May God within you help you make the right choices, for in your Heart you know the difference between right and wrong. Make of your Life something beautiful for God!" - Mother Teresa
