Open House….Conversations with …. 30 August
Little weekly reflections from those ‘minds alive’, our friends and intercessors waiting on our arrival.
Mother, how do we live by example?
Thomas Malcolm Muggeridge was a British journalist and media celebrity who did not care much about God and religion. But…he saw compassion actualised before his very eyes through the person of Mother Teresa and that made him do something he had sworn he would never do – he became a Catholic!
Muggeridge had an assignment to write about Mother Teresa. Travelling to India, he thought the trip was just the usual work but the amazing thing was, in the course of his talks and days of observation of the little nun, he experienced a complete conversion of his heart, his mind, his soul, his very being.
He confessed: “Words cannot express how much I owe her, she showed me Christianity in action. She showed me the power of love. She showed me how one loving person can start a tidal wave of love that can spread to the entire world!”
“You must first learn to forget yourself
so that you can dedicate yourself to God and to neighbour alike!”
St Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
