A psalm of mercy
Have mercy on me, God, have mercy,
for in you I take refuge.
In the shadow of your wings I take refuge,
till harm pass by.
I call to God the Most High,
to God, my benefactor.
May he send from heaven and save me;
may he make those a reproach who
trample upon me;
may God send his mercy and his faithfulness.
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
above all the earth be your glory!
For your mercy towers to the heavens,
and your faithfulness to the skies.
From Mother Teresa
"Poverty doesn't only consist of being hungry for bread ... We need to love and to be somebody for someone else."
