–        I believe that politicians spend too little time on their knees. I am convinced that they would be better politicians if they were to do so….Mother Teresa

–        We Christians are not looking for suffering, but for joy. God, living in joy,   wantedjoy-button-1 to communicate it to all people. This is why he sent it down into our misery, nailing it to the cross. At that point, the cross became the way toward joy. Christianity is not at all morality and prohibitions—first and foremost it is wonder before things.
