All we do—our prayer, our work, our suffering—is for Jesus. Our life has no other reason or motivation. This is a point many people do not understand. I serve Jesus twenty-four hours a day. Whatever I do is for Him. And He gives me strength. I love Him in the poor and the poor in Him, but always the Lord comes first.
—From the book St. Teresa of Calcutta: Missionary, Mother, Mystic
