If we recognize Jesus under the appearance of bread,
we will have no difficulty recognizing him in the disguise of the suffering poor.
--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
How did Mother Teresa find the strength to work day in and day out for the well-being of the poor and destitute? She was inspired in part by Matthew 25, which we heard at Mass this weekend: Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. As important was her daily participation in Eucharist. To read about the connection she made here, check out Brandon Vogt's article on the Word on Fire blog by clicking here.
