Mother Teresa Quote on Trust

“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish He didn’t trust me so much.”
– Mother Teresa

Did you know that Mother Teresa had lost her faith in God for the last four decades of her life? Yes, you read that right. 40 years!

(See this article in Time for more about her crisis.) The fact that she could continue to work with the most ill and destitute despite her loss of faith is a testament to her strength and compassion.

I really don’t know how someone could be around so much suffering and death without some sort of faith or belief in a higher power. How could you retain a brightness and hopefulness about life without it? What do you think?
