But where is the man that can live without dining?

However, and this is the supreme irony of it all, never before have musicians tried so hard to communicate with their audience, and never before has that communication been so deceiving.

Jacques Attali

Often I wonder what does really God get from me in this state no faith, no love not even in feelings. The other day I can't tell you how bad I felt. There was a moment when I nearly refused to accept. Deliberately I took the Rosary and very slowly and without even meditating or thinking I said it slowly and calmly. The moment passed- but the darkness is so dark, and the pain is so painful. But I accept whatever He gives and I give whatever He takes. People say they are drawn closer to God- seeing my strong faith. is this not deceiving people? Every time I have wanted to tell the truth that I have no faith the words just do not come my mouth remains closed. And yet I still keep on smiling at God and all.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta
