            The fruit of service is PEACE.  Mother Teresa wrote “Works of love are always works of peace.  Whenever you share love with others, you will notice the peace that comes to you and to them.  When there is peace, there is God – this is how God touches our lives and shows His love for us, by pouring peace and joy into our hearts.

            John Henry Cardinal Newman wrote: Dear Lord, help me to spread thy fragrance everywhere I go.  Flood our souls with your spirit and life, penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly, that our lives may only be a radiance of yours.  Shine through us and be in us, that every soul we come in contact with may feel Your presence in our soul.”

            Paulo Cohelo wrote: “Love is the force that transforms and improves the Soul of the World.  It is we who nourish the Soul of the World and the world we live in will be either better or worse, depending on whether we become better or worse.  That is where the power of love comes in, because we love, we always strive to become better than we are.”
