Jesus said : “I’am thirsty” and it is finished! John 19:28-29
Mother Teresa named every home established “I Thirst” responding to Jesus’ second last word on the cross at Calvary. She said that it is love that the heart thirsts and hungers. Unless a disciple of Christ quenched the thirst of a longing, he is not to say “it is finished”.
God called Mother Teresa to love and care for the poor and this calling took top priority in her life to serve God’s holy poor in Calcutta. for the whole of her lifetime.
Pope Francis declared Mother Teresa a Saint on September 4 2016. Pope Francis canonized her as St. Teresa of Calcutta; a symbol of goodness and love for people everywhere all over the world. God wants to hear the thirst of our heart to love and to serve.
Only a thirsty heart knows the best to serve the thirsty and the hungry.
