We must have a real living determination to reach holiness. 'I will be a saint' mean I will despoil myself of all that is not God; I will strip my heart of all created things; I will live in poverty and detachment; I will renounce my will, my inclinations, my whims and fancies, and make myself a willing slave to the will of God.

This quote is about holiness.

A bit about Mother Teresa ...

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, OM (August 27, 1910 September 5, 1997) was an Indian Catholic nun of Albanian origin who founded the Missionaries of Charity. Her work among the poverty-stricken of Kolkata (Calcutta) made her one of the world's most famous people, and it is widely thought that she will be canonized shortly.
