I started thinking about St. Teresa, and all she did to help the poor and needy. Of all the people she came in contact with - all the people God sent her way - I wondered what percentage of them she helped. Because she gave up so many worldly things so early, she probably helped a good percentage of them.
I contrasted that with what my percentage would be. I wondered how many opportunities I missed because I was preoccupied with other things. I imagine I have missed as many as St. Teresa helped.
As I began to despair over that fact, I came across this quote from her :
"Never worry about the numbers. Help one person at a time, and always start with the person nearest you."
What an inspiring quote from our newest Saint.
God Bless you.
