Mother Teresa is known for her radiant smile and the joy of Christ that she brought to all she met,even in the most challenging circumstances. These daily stories and meditations in her own words point to the secret of living in that joy: simplicity, humble surrender to Jesus, thankfulness, and, above all, a heart filled with God’s love. These keys will unlock the gift of joy in every thirsting heart.
“Make an effort to radiate joy, which is the fruit of the Spirit and a characteristic mark of the kingdom of God. God is joy. We have no reason to be unhappy. Christ, wanting to share His joy with the disciples, prayed that ‘my joy be in you and your joy be complete.’ Jesus must have radiated joy and you should do the same, in your eyes, attitude, the
way you walk, the way you listen, and your whole being.”—Mother Teresa
