Mother Teresa

My Smile is a great cloak that hides a multitude of pains.

I am told God lives in me--and yet the reality of darkness and coldness and emptiness is so great that nothing touches my soul.

I want God with all the power of my soul--and yet between us there is terrible serpation.

Heaven from every side is closed.

I feel just that terrible pain of loss, of God not wanting me, of God not being God, of God not really existing.

-Mother Teresa

"Loss of the divine presence was the ultimate sacrifice that emptied her soul but mysteriously energized her mission."
