The greatest evil in the world

Mother Teresa said:
‘Many today are starving for ordinary bread.
But there is another kind of hunger -
the hunger to be wanted, to be loved, to be recognised.
Nakedness too is not just the want of clothes,
but also about loss of dignity, purity, and self-respect.
And homelessness is not just want of a house;
there is the homelessness of being rejected,
of being unwanted in a throwaway society.
The biggest disease in the world today
is the feeling of being unwanted and uncared for.
The greatest evil in the world is lack of love,
the terrible indifference towards one’s neighbour.’
Lord, warm our cold hearts with your grace,
so that we your disciples may produce the fruits of love.
