THE SIMPLE PATH

The fruit of silence is PRAYER.

The fruit of prayer is FAITH.

The fruit of faith is LOVE.

The fruit of love is SERVICE.

The fruit of service is PEACE.

An Indian admirer of Mother Teresa, a businessman, once had five lines printed for her on small yellow cards. These she called her "business cards" and she offered them freely to people because they clearly explained the direction of her work, her simple path.  This path is one that she has distilled from her long experience of working for the love of God with her fellow human beings. It is composed of six essential steps:

  • Silence

  • Prayer

  • Faith

  • Love

  • Service

  • Peace

Familiarity with one will naturally lead on to another.   If one surrenders to the nature of the process, life will inevitably run more smoothly, more joyfully, and more peacefully.
