[Mother Teresa] was being interviewed by a journalist about her life and faith. At one point the intereviewer asked her what she said to God when she prayed.

"I don't say anything," she replied. "I just listen."

"And when you listen," said the interviewer, "what does God say?"

"He doesn't say anything," she replied. "He just listens." Before the bewildered journalist could say anything more, she added, "And if you can't understand that, I can't explain it to you."
