A Simple Path

by blmaluso

After watching the beautiful film about Mother Teresa’s  ministry and life, I was led to read “A Simple Path” to learn more about her faith.

There is such simplicity in Mother Teresa’s total love and trust in Jesus that I cannot keep myself from being filled with the Holy Spirit as I read!

I would love to share a beautiful  prayer with you.  It is one of the daily prayers that the sisters say each day.  May God bless you as you read:

 

Deliver me, O Jesus,

From the desire of being loved,

From the desire of being extolled,

From the desire of being honored,

From the desire of being praised,

From the desire of being preferred,

From the desire of being consulted,

From the desire of being approved,

From the desire of being popular,

From the fear of being humiliated,

From the fear of being despised,

From the fear of suffering rebukes,

From the fear of being calumniated,

From the fear of being forgotten,

From the fear of being wronged,

From the fear of being ridiculed,

From the fear of being suspected.

 

Wow!  Love is simple.  However, this completely selfless type of love and trust in Jesus only comes to our hearts by the power of the Holy Spirit.

May God bless you and fill your heart with His love!
