Matthew 25

Matthew 25 has always been a favorite of mine. Recently, I read a wonderful reflection on Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa carried the Gospel in her hand without a book. Sometimes when asked to describe the Gospel message, she would take her listener's hand and pinch each finger, saying, "You. Did. It. To. Me." You did it to me. This five-finger gospel, taken from Matthew 25:40, summed up for Mother Teresa the truth about the body of Christ and showed her the way to love the God she could not see in the brother or sister she could see.
