My husband and I, ask Mother Teresa to pray for us because we want to have another baby, she sends us this pray
Maria mother of Jesus tell Jesus to send us a baby.
We were very happy with her letter.
Also she sends two medals
We love mother Teresa because she have love for all.
Years ago, in very seriously depressed times I wrote a letter to an address in a Catholic magazine to a working monastery in Calcutta. I was intrigued by suffering for the Faith. The letter I got in reply was signed personally from Sister Teresa. She was the messenger of light that God used to pierce my soul concerning long suffering and endurance. She took the time out of her busy day of close loving care for the dying, to write me a letter.
The letter itself assured me that no punishment is considered pleasant at the time it is taking place, but afterwards yields great blessings. My blessings were counted in the way of Bible study.
Angels walked on either side of me the rest of my afflicted times, and God saved me from death's door.
The first Novena I made to Mother Teresa was an incredible experience which I attribute to her. On the third day of my prayers to her, my husband and I sat out on the front porch and I selfishly asked Mother for a sign (which was arrogant on my part and as I’ve read, a bit dangerous). I asked for a rainbow for I had not seen any since moving to TN. It had rained earlier, and about 3pm, a beautiful rainbow appeared in the blue Eastern sky. It was brightly colored, visible to both ends. I alerted Noel (my husband) and as he and I were looking at it, lo and behold, a duplicate rainbow appeared above the first, just as beautiful. Uncanny as it sounds, the rainbows remained there until twilight set in when they started to fade. Now, I have to attribute this to Mother Teresa.
Hi my name is Zulma and I would like to share my most recent experience with Mother Theresa.
Two years ago I met a wonderful man. Throughout the past two years we have had our ups and downs. Last July he tried to get a Visa to come and visit me, however it was denied. All my hopes had gone to the drained. However, as a true Christian I couldn't see myself giving up. We were both devastated. I cried and prayed. I tried to be of comfort to him. I explained that maybe it was not the right time and that God will decide when it was the right time for us to meet again.
About three weeks ago I was getting ready to request a Visa for him. This time I turned to Mother Theresa for help. I prayed and asked her to intercede for me before God our Lord. I was sure she would help.
The day I went to request the Visa it was just like any other day. I went through the day said my morning prayer on the way to work and forgot about it. On my way to the office it dawn on me that I had not been worried at all during the day. Somehow I knew it will be all right. I received a piece of paper which I was to send to him to take to the embassy in the country he is in.
Today, Glorious God, he just called and he will be coming home at the end of the week.
Oh Mother Theresa I have no words to express my gratitude to you. I have been waiting for so long.. Faith brought me to you and you have interceded for me before God. Thank you for your love.
Thank you Lord.
I don't really know Mother Teresa, but she has made an impact on my life. I watched a video on her life, and that made me want to dedicate my life to God.
Mother Teresa helps me to help the poor and the needy because she did, and it means a lot to your inner self when you can help someone. I also want to help everyone in our world because Mother Teresa did that. She inspires me to help our world, not only to help others but to help our world to make it a better place.
When I went to Medjugorje, I was told that if you pray hard enough your purpose in life will be revealed to you. As a reborn Catholic I remember praying and a thought was placed in my head: Who is your biggest hero in the world? I had read somewhere that if you can answer that question, that is where your heart should be. Mother Teresa's name instantly came to me.
But I thought to myself, "How can I do what she did? I am married with three children." Then I pondered my heart more, and more answers came. She helped the sick and dying. That was it; I would become a nurse. Now I'm pursuing that career field. It hasn't been easy, but I leave it in God's hands. If it's his will, I will succeed, and that's all I need.
I want to be just like her right down to the one hour before the Blessed Sacrament every day. The only thing that I can't emulate is her outfit, but if I could I'd wear it proudly.
I look at her and there is a love in her face and her actions that really inspired me a lot.
