By the way....

I finished the Mother Teresa book today. And today turned out to be the day she died back in 1997...her future feast day.

*Cue a pipe organ playing the Twilight Zone theme*

Saints' lives do have this terrible tendency to be much more challenging and relevant than we want them to be. With Mother Teresa's insistence on doing the small things, on meeting the immediate need you can see, seeing Christ in every person you meet and every "distressing disguise", and even on doing everything with a smile as a gift of love and encouragement to don't have the luxury of saying "I'm just a normal person; God doesn't expect that from me."
