A Retreat with Mother Teresa
Date: June 2011
Duration: 2 hours 35 minutes
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) touched the hearts of men and women around the world with her charity, compassion, and faithfulness. Now, you can experience a one-of-a-kind retreat with Mother Teresa in this series. Presented by gifted professor, author, and contemplative retreat leader Fr. Donald Goergen, O. P. , these life-changing conferences are designed to capture your spiritual imagination and deepen your life with Christ.
Born Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, which ministered to the poorest of the poor. In Calcutta, she carried out Christ's message of welcoming the least among us-orphans, refugees, lepers, the mentally ill, and many others.
Acutely aware of the plight of the poor and the demands of the Gospel, Mother Teresa grounded in her commitment to Christ and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Faith, however, did not always come easily to this saintly woman; like so many of us, she struggled with "dark nights of the soul" and spiritual dryness. She saw herself as a mystic of darkness, finding Christ in a cloud of unknowing.
In A Retreat with Mother Teresa, you will explore Blessed Teresa's powerful impact on the world. You will also see how her spiritual struggles and ultimate triumph can inspire you today. Let Mother Teresa accompany you and offer wise guidance in your journey to eternal life.
