Why not try and hold your tongue?

Why not try and hold your tongue?
You know what you can do but  you do not know how much the other person can bear.

Mother Teresa said "I fear just one thing: money! Greed - the love of money"

When Mother has a real problem: like finding a roof for lepers, a home for children(1), she goes to ask. And for every big donation of money she always has an immediate application in building a home, a hospital, a shelter... But never Mother Teresa does fund raising. The sisters know it very well: when there is no food, a need for a bigger place or need for money to be able to build or buy a house for the poor, Mother invites all the sisters to pray and often organizes adoration to put the matter in Gods'Hands. A beautiful example of this can be seen in one of the videos on Mother (by An and Jeannet Petrie).

At the same time Mother is scrupulously looking and checking how every single penny in a convent is spent. The sisters have to answer this every time she comes to visit. Every cent is a gift for the poor.
Mother herself believes that she will have to answer to Jesus for every single penny people gave her, for every word she spoke, for every act she put. Because she wants her surrender to God, her trust in Him and her love for Him, so pure, so perfect, so beautiful... There should not be a spot, a hidden gesture, a wasted minute, a spoiled penny... Only when we can imagine a love so deep and honest, a devotion so pure, we can understand how deeply Mother was involved to a good use of the money people gave her.
When we read this words of her, we can understand better maybe:

"I fear just one thing: money! Greed - the love of money - was what motivated Judas to sell Jesus." (M. Teresa)

Travel Tips

Sanitizing Wipes:
Keep your personal space free of bacteria. Carry sanitizing wipes.
Airplane trays, steering wheel and arm rest of the rental car, Hotel TV remote, light switches to name  a few have been touched by so many people and we do not know how clean they are.
So wipe them with sanitizing wipes before you touch them.

Stomach disorder:
Travelling can cause indigestion, so stay hydrated (liquid helps to move food through the digestive system) and eat enough fiber.
From the breakfast buffet pick up an apple.
Carry high protein, high fiber and low sugar snacks.

Avoiding valuables stolen from your car

Do not leave valuables, purse, briefcase etc in your car unattended. Hiding it under a towel or under the seat or inside the trunk is not enough. Thieves are smart and they look for such clues.

Do not leave postal mail in the car like credit card statements or any mail that has personal information. Your personal information can be used by the thief to steal your identity.

Do not keep the vehicle registration card inside the car. Keep a copy in your wallet or purse. The thief can use the information on your registration card and apply for a new title of the car. Based on the new title he can apply for a loan on the car.

Do not leave garage door opener or house keys inside the car. The thief can steal valuables from your car and with the garage door opener, he can steal valuables from your house also.
