I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.
Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given.
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
