Saint Mother Teresa had all her life a deep relationship to ignatian Spirituality.
As a Business Card she liked to distribute the following words,
which can be seen as an unfolding of the contemplativus in actione:
The fruit of silence is prayer.
The fruit of prayer is faith.
The fruit of faith is love.
The fruit of love is service.
The fruit of service is peace.
Saint Mother Teresa
Lord, make me a channel of your peace, That where there is hatred, I may bring love: Where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness: Where there is discord, I may bring harmony: Where there is error, I may bring truth: Where there is doubt, I may bring faith: Where there is despair, I may bring hope: Where there are shadows, I may bring light: Where there is sadness, I may bring joy:
Lord, grant I may seek rather To comfort than to be comforted; To understand than to be understood; To love than to be loved;
For it is by forgetting self that one finds, It is by forgiving that one is forgiven, It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
