There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.
