This is the Joy of the Lord

"We are at Jesus' disposal. 
If He wants you to be sick in bed,
if He wants you to proclaim His work in the street, 
if He wants you to clean the toilets all day, 
that's all right, everything is all right. 
We must say 'I belong to You. You can do whatever You like.' 
And this is our strength, and this is the joy of the Lord."

St. Teresa of Calcutta
