Blessed Mother Teresa on Faith: "Words that do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness."

Mother Teresa
We need to find God and God cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature — trees, flowers, grass — grow in silence; see the stars, the moon, the sun, how they move in silence. Is not our mission to give God to the poor in the slums? Not a dead God, but a living, loving God. The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life. We need silence to be able to touch souls. The essential thing is not what we say, but what God says to us and through us. All our words will be useless unless they come from within — words that do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
— Blessed Mother Teresa
