The Poor Are God's Poor

"Let there be no pride or vanity in the work. The work is God's work, the poor are God's poor. Put yourself competely under the influence of Jesus, so that he may think his thoughts in your mind, do his work through your hands, for you will be all-powerful with him to strengthen you." 
Mother Teresa
