Mother Teresa's Crisis of Faith

An article in Time magazine, online here.

A new book, by Mother Teresa's postulator - Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, has some pretty incredible revelations. In short, "...for the last nearly half-century of her life she felt no presence of God whatsoever - or, as the book's compiler and editor, the Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk, writes, "neither in her heart or in the eucharist."

Wow. As a seeker myself this is haunting, and quite beautiful. It is one thing to be touched by the divine and to toil in the glow of certainty. To have lived the life she lived with such doubts, such yearning.....

Definitely on my reading list....
