Wink Mother Teresa's Faith

Well I think many of you already know that Mother Teresa didn't believe in God for almost most of her life, or as she said. "didn't feel his presence" and "couldn't believe no matter how hard I tried"

She says in a letter of confession:

Quote:
"Jesus has a very special love for you," she assured Van der Peet. "[But] as for me, the silence and the emptiness is so great, that I look and do not see, Listen and do not hear the tongue moves [in prayer] but does not speak ... I want you to pray for me that I let Him have [a] free hand."
More is revealed in a book which publishes her letters of confession throughout 66 years. The book is called Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light (I just bought it )

Another quote from the same source:

Quote:
And in fact, that appears to be the case. A new, innocuously titled book, Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light (Doubleday), consisting primarily of correspondence between Teresa and her confessors and superiors over a period of 66 years, provides the spiritual counterpoint to a life known mostly through its works. The letters, many of them preserved against her wishes (she had requested that they be destroyed but was overruled by her church), reveal that 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."
