As a Catholic evangelist and blogger, I’m always interested in books that feature quotes from the Saints and holy people. I’ve found that a brief inspirational quote placed on Twitter or Facebook can often do more good than a long dissertation. Therefore, I was delighted to discover Listening To God with Mother Teresa by Woodeene Koenig-Bricker. This short, but powerful, book will provide you with several quotes that are sure to bring you closer to the Lord.
The book features 100 brief observations from this holy woman, each accompanied by a corresponding scripture verse. Imagine starting your day by reading some of the following gems:
“Moodiness is nothing else but the fruit of pride.”
“The best way to show your gratitude to God and to people is to accept everything with joy.”
“Like Mary, let us be full of zeal to go in haste to give Jesus to others.”
Listening to the opinions of saintly people can inspire us all to live holier lives. I highly recommend this powerful book, especially to those who don’t have a lot of time for reading. Reading one quote and a short scripture passage each day will serve as an excellent Lenten exercise and will assist you greatly in your walk with the Lord!
