"It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love we put in the giving. We can do no great things; only small things with great love. There is a terrible hunger for love. We all experience that in our lives – the pain, the loneliness. We must have the courage to recognize it. The poor you may have right in your own family. Find them. Love them."
“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty -- it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There's a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” - Blessed Mother TeresaThere is, without a doubt, a hunger for love in our culture today. It is a very serious epidemic that has a devastating affect on each and every one of us. Of course, from the first moment of the original sin, our love has never been what it was meant to be, however, it has gotten worse and worse as the world continues to grow in darkness. We have an important duty, as soldiers of Christ, to love everyone, in every little thing we do and say, and in every situation. Yet, it can be quite intimidating to have this duty of being the proof of Christ's love in the world. Our new papa, Pope Francis, courageously exclaimed, "We must not be afraid of goodness, of tenderness!"
