Bearing Fruit

The fruit of silence is prayer. The fruit of prayer is faith. The fruit of faith is love. The fruit of love is service. The fruit of service is peace.

This philosophy was Mother Teresa’s calling card. It’s quite simple really, and addresses something that so many of us are searching for. That peace that is beyond all understanding.

It starts with something quite small that I keep rediscovering. That time of silence allows us to get rid of all the distractions and truly pray. It allows us to truly be present in the presence of God. Who would have thought that something so simple could lead to so much that is profound.

One thing leads to another. Not always quickly. Not always efficiently. Not always in an orderly fashion. That’s okay. We will keep on the journey and searching for our fruit.
