An interesting follow up on Mother Teresa
An interesting brief about Mother Teresa recently cropped up on the wire. It is, in my opinion, a good follow up to my previous blog post about the reported “crisis of the soul” experienced by the beloved nun in the years before her death.
Here’s the story, written by Maryann Gogniat Eidemiller with the Religion News Service:
Friends say Mother Teresa’s darkness was a test of faith
LATROBE, Pa. (RNS) To the people who knew and loved Mother Teresa of
Calcutta, the darkness she wrote about in her memoirs was not a crisis of faith, but a trial of her faith.
“When people see the story of her great faith and love, they see that kind of experience that’s necessary for someone on this mystic way to Jesus Christ,” the Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk, editor of “Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light,” said at a recent conference held atSaint Vincent
“Remembrances of Mother Teresa of
Calcutta by Her Family and Friends” drew nearly 1,000 people from around the world. They included her successor as head of the Missionaries of Charity, Sister Nirmala Joshi, and the Rev. Robert Conroy, superior general of the Missionaries of Charity Fathers and a founder of the I Thirst Movement, started in 2006 in response to one of the driving forces of Mother Teresa’s passion for the poor.
