Don’t Wait to be a Saint

Mother Teresa was declared a saint an hour ago at the Vatican.

She was 12 when she decided to commit to a religious life (in 1922) and served thousands in India until her death in 1997. Her work affected tens of millions (and continues to do so).

She didn’t wait.

She didn’t wait for a position, a rank, a title, permission, a ticket, a formal degree, or even sainthood.

She didn’t need these things.

She served. She led.

She believed in ending suffering and did what she could for those she touched.

So don’t wait. You don’t need permission. Don’t wait until they let you.

Like sainthood, by the time it comes, it’ll be too late.

Start small, start today, and don’t wait.
