What Mother Teresa Wanted to Say


“Everything in this world is what happens between you and your Inner God, after all. Things have never happened between you and others.”―Mother Teresa

  • Inner God 内在神
  • after all 結局は
  • others 他人

Good words. She received much acclaim for her activities from all over the world while she was alive, which I think didn’t matter to her. Then why did she show up to get the prize? This was because she wanted the world to know the tragic reality of poverty.

  • receive 受ける
  • acclaim   称賛
  • activity   活動
  • alive 生きている
  • matter 重要である
  • show up 姿を現す
  • prize 賞
  • tragic 悲劇的な
  • poverty 貧困

What I feel from her picture is; “The most serious sin of human beings is indifference to others. Even in families, indifference has prevailed. This is the cause of family breakdown. If family breakdown increases in number, the country will be devastated. When a country is devastated, so are other countries. Then the whole earth will end up being devastated. All these things are caused by indifference among human beings. In the first place, pay more attention to your family. Go back home.”

  • sin 罪
  • indifference 無関心
  • prevail 蔓延した
  • family breakdown 家庭崩壊
  • increase 増える
  • devastate 荒廃させる
  • go to ruin 荒廃する
  • cause 引き起こす
  • in the first place まず第一に
  • pay attention to A Aに注意を払う

She must have felt that anything visible is what the Original God is projected onto, and human beings are one existence in a true sense. Spiritually speaking, there exists only one human being who has 6 billion characters. Even now.

  • visible 目に見える
  • project 投影する
  • existence 存在
  • in a true sense 真の意味で
  • character 性格

God and humans face each other one to one. You, living alone, are not lonely, are you? That poor man is you. That billionaire is you. That sick person is you. That gold medalist is you.

  • one to one 一対一で
  • lonely 孤独な
  • billionaire 億万長者

With even one unhappy person being somewhere else, the whole human beings can’t be really happy. Oh, you might think “No , I don’t think so. When I eat good food, only I can feel it is delicious. This is the reality.” Are you happy with it? You have to know real happiness. If you eat it together, don’t you feel it more delicious?

  • whole 全体の
  • delicious 美味しい
