In Self-Sacrificing Work For The Needy

Poem By Dr. Antony Theodore

Monastic silence and solitude
are not necessary prerequisites
for a divine experience.

There are many who serve God
with great purity of soul
and perfect self-sacrifice
in the active life.

They are able to live in
God's presence
by devoting themselves
to Him in self-sacrificing
work for the needy and the poor.

Comments about In Self-Sacrificing Work For The Needy

We do not need to live like a Monk in order to have divine experiences. We can serve God with a very pure soul through practising self-sacrifice in our lives and by working for and with the poor and needy in His name. Very inspiring write, beautifully penned and expressed. Thank you for sharing, Tonyyyyy...

If you die before me
I would jump down into your grave
and hug you so innocently
that angels will become jealous.

To keep as a treasure in my heart.
Someone who is so true
Fine and caring.
