May these words from Mother Teresa bring you joy, even in the face of the challenges of daily life.
September 8: Obedience, well lived, frees us from selfishness and pride and helps us to find God.
In him, we find the whole world. Obedience is a special grace that produces unfailing peace, inward joy, and close union with God.
Obedience lived with joy creates a deep awareness of his presence. Fidelity to obedience—constant, prompt, cheerful, undivided obedience—becomes like drops of oil that keep the light of Jesus living in our life. Our Lady will teach us how to obey like Jesus, who was obedient unto death.
September 9: Immaculate Heart of Mary, our Queen and Mother, be more and more our way to Jesus, the light of Jesus, and the life of Jesus in each one of us.
