" . . . then you are free." Blessed Mother Teresa

Blessed Mother Teresa speaks: 

            "Total surrender is to accept whatever he gives and give whatever it takes with a big smile. It is to accept to be cut to pieces and yet every piece to belong only to him. We must accept emptiness, accept being broken to pieces, accept success and failure. To give whatever it takes -- if it takes your good name or your health -- that is surrender and then you are free."
