Decision and will are not enough to accomplish good and here, to live fully in gratitude. A third dimension towards freedom is perseverance in the means chosen. Where are we up to in our resolutions ?
Today, let us meditate on this text of Mother Teresa and the achievement of her life :
« Often, under the pretext of humility, trust, abandonment, we have forgotten how to use the force of our will. Everything depends on these two words : I will or I won’t. And in this expression « I will », I must put all my energy » (Mother Teresa of Calcutta).
