When Helping The Needy Is Difficult

When we handle the sick and the needy we touch the suffering body of Christ and this touch will make us heroic; it will make us forget the repugnance and the natural tendencies in us.  We need they eyes of deep faith to see Christ in the broken body and dirty clothes under which the most beautiful one among the sons of men hides.  We shall need the hands of Christ to touch these bodies wounded by pain and suffering.  Intense love does not measure--it just gives.

--Mother Teresa
