Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God… to be alone with Him — not with our books, thoughts, and memories but completely stripped of everything — to dwell lovingly in His presence, silent, empty, expectant, and motionless. We cannot find God in noise or agitation.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, In the Heart [...]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus’ thirst…’Repent and believe’ Jesus tells us. What are we to repent? Our indifference, our hardness of heart. What are we to believe?

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“A clean heart is a free heart. A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Purity, chastity, and virginity created a special beauty in Mary that attracted God’s attention. He showed his great love for the world by giving Jesus to her.” (Blessed Teresa of [...]

I heard the girls yell, “We love you Momma!” Well, I love you to the moon and back!The whole Wallace family at “Dr. Mom’s” graduation from LSU with PhD. The girls told me they were proud of me. The only thing I really remember about the ceremony is when I was called across stage to get the degree… I heard the girls yell, “We love you Momma!” Well, I love you to the moon and back!

What to tell the girls about motherhood and career…

Recently, I was invited to speak at the Atlanta Catholic Business Conference sponsored by The Integrated Catholic Life, EWTN, Belmont Abbey College and the Aquinas Center of Theology. It was a blessing to be among such faith-filled working Catholic laity, living in the truth by integrating their faith and all areas of their lives, including their work. I spoke about [...]

Embracing Life’s Irritations — The True Path To Happiness

I traipsed up the aisle with a baby on my hip and four little ducklings waggling behind just before the choir belted the first verse of Sing Ye To The Lord.  We stopped at the entrance of a pew and my Sunday-dressed brood filed into their seats.  I followed them in, dropped my overstuffed diaper bag, knelt and surveyed the [...]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“Many people are concerned with children of India, with the children of Africa where quite a few die of hunger, and so on. Many people are also concerned about the violence in this great country of the United States. These concerns are very good. But often these same people are not concerned with the millions being killed by the deliberate [...]

After all, there’s that crazy time factor to deal with – or shall I say, the [...]

Daily Catholic Quote from Blessed Teresa of Calcutta

“Let anyone who comes to you go away feeling better and happier. Everyone should see goodness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile. Joy shows from the eyes. It appears when we speak and walk. It cannot be kept closed inside us. It reacts outside. Joy is very infectious.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta) If you liked this quote, [...]
