Alone in the Darkness

October 22, 2012

Alone. The darkness is so dark — and I am alone. — Unwanted, forsaken. — The loneliness of the heart that wants love is unbearable. — Where is my faith? — even deep down, right in, there is nothing but emptiness & darkness.

Did I make the mistake in surrendering blindly to the call of the Sacred Heart? The work is not a doubt — because I am convinced that it is His not mine.

* * *

What are You doing My God to one so small? When You asked to imprint Your Passion on my heart — is this the answer?

If this brings You glory, if You get a drop of joy from this — if souls are brought to You — if my suffering satiates Your Thirst — here I am Lord, with joy I accept all to the end of life — & I will smile at Your Hidden Face — always.

+ Mother Teresa, Letter dated July 13, 1959
