People today speak much about the poor, but they do not know or talk to the poor. So, too, we can talk much about prayer and yet not know how to pray.
We have to feed ourselves. We can die from spiritual starvation. We must be filled continually, like a machine. When one little thing in the machine is not working, then the whole machine is not working properly.
We need oil for the lamp.
Our lives must be connected with the living Christ in us. If we do not live in the presence of God, we cannot go on. Mother Teresa.
