"Finding Joy in the Darkest Night"

...a fantastic article on Blessed Mother Teresa, and how she lived a life of joy in spite of feeling abandonned by God for 50 years.

I know I've said this before, but I will say again how THANKFUL I am... not that she went through such a dark night... but that she is left as a witness to us. Her very name was the embodiment of sainthood -- "hey, I'm no Mother Teresa, but..." -- and very few would doubt her holiness, her joy, and her work for the Lord.


...for 50 years this blessed, holy woman pressed on in faith despite all evidence to the contrary that Jesus was with her, guiding her, and would never abandon her.

She is my hero in the faith.

Mother Teresa was amazing. I missed meeting her twice by just a day or so. Once I was in Rome working at her home for the poor, and she was coming the next week, and once I was in Tijuana and she had just been there at the convent we stay at! At least I got to sit at the fountain where she sat ;-)
