A Christmas card from Mother Teresa. December 17, 2011

“It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you.”

                         —Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta  

Mother Teresa is one of our friend Ben’s favorite saints (and yes, I know that she hasn’t been officially canonized yet, but still). So I was thrilled when Silence Dogood returned from a local crafts show with a packet of handmade Christmas cards bearing the beautiful quote with which I began this post.

Silence had bought the cards not only because they reflected Mother Teresa’s deep compassion and profound understanding of God and man, and not just for the wonderful Pennsylvania Dutch fraktur illustration that surrounded the quote, but because the artist had put this message inside each card: “May you celebrate Christmas often in the New Year.”

What a wonderful way to keep the joy of this blessed season alive in our hearts throughout the year! May we, and you, celebrate Christmas often—the Mother Teresa way—in the year to come.
