Breaking: Mother Teresa to be canonized September 4

Mutter Teresa, lachend, Dezember 1985She is perhaps one of the greatest saints in modern day. Not only was she a humble person who gave her life to poorest people of the world, she experienced the dark night. The dark night is feeling a sense of absence of God’s presence. It is a purification in the spiritual life in which the soul learns to love God exclusively for who he is rather that for what he can give.

While she felt this absence throughout the majority of her life, she remained faithful to our Lord. Now, living in a world in which her sisters are martyred, it is very timely that her name be raised to the altar of God.
