Mother Teresa in action. Never social work. Serving Jesus in the poorest of the poor. If Jesus is there, she’s there. This is most successful in dhimmitude situations. And don’t be phased by nay-sayers! That’s my favorite part of the film, not to mention the little one in the crib whose eyes brighten up. Very, very, very wonderful video.
I remember showing this to my mom way back in the day after I had been pretty much everywhere with the M.C.’s right around the world. She wanted to look away when we got to the part with the little one in the crib. Then, seeing what happened, was very moved.
Of course, sometimes, real charity like this bothers some muslim fanatics and they just go ahead and behead everyone because they were being charitable. They think it makes them look bad, like an incrimination.
And, of course, that’s what we’ve all done with our Lord’s goodness and kindness. He took it in, the worst we could give out, and therefore had the right in justice to have mercy on us. Is it hard for us to have that perspective of Jesus. Worse than that. It’s impossible. And that’s why, instead of demanding that we come up with some sort of goodness and kindness that shrinks away, replaces this with His own goodness and kindness within our own lives.
We need but ask for a spirit of humble thanksgiving. Harass your guardian angel about this, having him remind you throughout the day and night, so that you lift up heart and soul ever more simply, as He draws you into a greater realization of what it means that God is with us.
