Mother Teresa's Words, Meditations, Quotes, Anecdotes
On Sunday, 19 October 2003, His Holiness John Paul II proclaimed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, "Blessed." On this day, in the Year of the Rosary, the Church also celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Holy Father's Pontificate, as well as World Mission Sunday. The call of Jesus to Mother Teresa in 1946, "Come, be My light," resounded in St. Peter's Square, as we too were invited to radiate the light of Christ in the darkness of human poverty and pain.
The official page of Mother Teresa's cause of beatification (www.motherteresacause.info
) offers additional information about the ceremony.
"The Apostles did not know how to pray, and they asked Jesus to teach them.
He, then, taught them the Our Father.
I think that every time we say
the Our Father,
God looks at his hands,
where we are etched.
"See, I have inscribed you on
the palms of my hands..."
What a beautiful description and also
expressive of the personal love God
feels for each one of us!"
