Today’s Reflection October 26

How does a lamp burn? Through the continuous input of small  drops  of oil. If the drops of oil run out, the light of the lamp will cease, and the bridegroom will say, “I do not know you” (Mt. 25:1-13). What are these drops of oil in our lamps? They  are  the small things of daily life: faithfulness, punctuality, small words of kindness,  a  thought  for others, our way of being silent. . . These  are  the  true  drops  of  love  that keep  your  religious life burning  like a  lively  flame. Do not  look for Jesus  away from yourselves. He is not out there; he is within you. Keep your lamp burning, and you will recognize him.

– St. Teresa of Calcutta
