«Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.»

(SAINT TERESA AVILA)

Greatest man in history

Filed under: Jesus,Tro — gullkorn @ 1:37 pm

«Greatest Man in history, named JESUS, He had no servants, yet they called Him Master. Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him… He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.»

– Leah Anderson

«Det skjedde i de dager at det gikk ut en befaling fra keiser Augustus om at hele verden skulle joine en gruppe: «Vi som vil skrives inn i manntall». Dette skjedde mens Kvirinius var helt sjef i Syria, og gruppa fikk drøyt mange likes. Josef traska fra byen Nasaret i Galilea, opp til Judea, til Davids by Betlehem, for å signe manntallet sammen med Maria, dama hans, som hadde ei bolle i ommen. Og mens de var der, hevet bolla, for å si det sånn, og Maria leverte varene. Hu pakka kidden inn i noe tøy, og la’n i ei krybbe, for det var ikke plass til dem i herberget. Det var noen gjetere som var ute i natta og passa på sheepsa sine. Med ett var Herrens engler F2F, og Herrens diggbarhet lyste. Gjeterne bare: «OMG!», og engelen bare: «Slapp av, gutta! Jeg kommer med en tweet om glede, en glede for hele folket: #Frelser #Kristus #jomfrufødsel og dette skal dere ha til tegn: Dere skal finne en kid som er innpakka i noe tøy og ligger i ei krybbe.» Så kom engelens followers, en himmelsk hærskare, som ga masse kudos til Gud og retweeta: #Frelser #Kristus, og #ffnor Gud og fred på Jorden blant mennesker som har Guds velbehag» Da englene hadde tatt kvelden, sa gjeterne til hverandre: «La oss stikke inn til Betlehem for å kolla läget.» Og der fant de Maria og Josef og den lille kiden som læxan i krybba. Da oppretta de en ny gruppe: «Vi som har sett Jesus Kristus, Guds sønn». Folk bare: «Saklig, LOL». Gruppa fikk ikke så mange likes, for å si det sånn, men det var bare i starten, for seinere i livet fikk Jesus sinnssykt mange followers. Og Maria bare: «#DenFølelsen» Og gjeterne bare: «Helt konge!!!

 

On the other side februar 1, 2012

A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said,

«Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.»

Very quietly, the doctor said, «I don’t know.»

«You don’t know? You, a Christian man, do not know what is on the other side?»

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; from the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, «Did you see my dog’s behavior? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I know my Master is there and that is enough.»

 

Innan gryningen oktober 25, 2011

Filed under: Gud,Jesus — gullkorn @ 11:24 am

Så kom du då till sist. Du var en främling
en mytgestalt som jag hört talas om.
Så många hade målat dina bilder
men det var bortom bilderna du kom.

Vi trodde du var användbar, till salu
vi skrev ditt namn på våra stridsbanér
vi byggde katedraler högt mot himlen
men du gick hela tiden längre ner.

Du är ett barn som ligger på ett jordgolv
du fryser om vi inte griper in
du rör vid kroppar, hatar orättvisor
du bjuder älskande på moget vin.

Du stiger ut ur alla tomma gravar
du är en vind som säger: det blir vår.
Du kommer som en flykting över bergen
Du följer oss dit ingen annan når.

Du är den sång om livet som jag glömde
den sanning jag förrådde dag för dag.
Jag svek mig själv: den spegel
som jag gömde
bär dina bråddjup, dina anletsdrag.

Kom närmare. Bli kvar hos mig.
Det mörknar
och kanske ljusnar det på nytt igen.
Ditt liv ska bära mig. Jag hör en koltrast
som sjunger timmen innan gryningen.

I Herrens hender juni 16, 2011

Filed under: Gud,Jesus,Trøst,Tro,Trygghet,Velsignelse,vennlighet,Vennskap — gullkorn @ 7:36 pm

Som når en liten fugl med brukket vinge,
helst vil fly hjem,
men har jeg makt,
slik føltes det –
ingen vind som bar meg –
men nå flyr fuglen for jeg fant at:
I Herrens hender, i Herrens hender
der får jeg hvile, der er jeg trygg.
Det kanskje stormer rundt omkring meg,
men i Herrens hender der er jeg trygg.

Om du behøver en som går med deg
der ingen annen før har gått,
så fins det en som bærer byrden.
Han blir hos deg og alt blir godt.

 

Kloke ord fra Mor Teresa oktober 30, 2010

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Mother Teresa

.

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Mother Teresa

.

Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.
Mother Teresa

.

Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own.
Mother Teresa

.

I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
Mother Teresa

.

I want you to be concerned about your next door neighbor. Do you know your next door neighbor?
Mother Teresa

.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Mother Teresa

.

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Mother Teresa

.

If you want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Mother Teresa

.

Intense love does not measure, it just gives.
Mother Teresa

.

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace. Money will come if we seek first the Kingdom of God – the rest will be given.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us not be satisfied with just giving money. Money is not enough, money can be got, but they need your hearts to love them. So, spread your love everywhere you go.
Mother Teresa

.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
Mother Teresa

.

Loneliness and the feeling of being unwanted is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Loneliness is the most terrible poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.
Mother Teresa

.

Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
Mother Teresa

.

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Mother Teresa

.

Many people mistake our work for our vocation. Our vocation is the love of Jesus.
Mother Teresa

.

One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.
Mother Teresa

.

Our life of poverty is as necessary as the work itself. Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.
Mother Teresa

.

Peace begins with a smile.
Mother Teresa

.

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
Mother Teresa

.

The biggest disease today is not leprosy or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted.
Mother Teresa

.

The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.
Mother Teresa

.

The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Mother Teresa

.

The miracle is not that we do this work, but that we are happy to do it.
Mother Teresa

.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.
Mother Teresa

.

There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work. This is where the respect and the love and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.
Mother Teresa

.

There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use.
Mother Teresa

.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Mother Teresa

.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Mother Teresa

.

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Mother Teresa

.

We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty.
Mother Teresa

.

Words which do not give the light of Christ increase the darkness.
Mother Teresa
