MEDITATION:

Written by Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997), a Roman Catholic nun and missionary in Calcutta, India.  This is an excerpt from her book “A Gift For God .”

Everywhere there is much suffering, but there is also great hunger for God and love for each other.

Written by Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), a Benedictine monk, abbot, philosopher and Christian theologian. He served as the archbishop of Canterbury from 1093-1109.

And you have bestowed on me all the good things I possess,

And still I do not know you.

I have not yet done that for which I was made.

Teach me to seek you,

Let me love you when I find you. Amen.
