“In my heart there no faith – no love – no trust – there is so much pain – the pain of longing – the pain of not being wanted. I want God with all the powers of my soul – and yet there between us – there is terrible separation.”
Though Mother Teresa longed for joy in her faith, she knew that her feelings were not the point. Perhaps in an age of prosperity preaching and happy-clappy worship, in which faith is so often equated with feeling, Mother Teresa’s example brings us the word we need.
