My husband , who is 68 years old and was just baptized confirmed and received into the Church was very hesitant about making his first confession a few months after. Clutching Mother's replica of her rosary I prayed for her intercession, asking her to give my husband the courage to enter the Confessional. Not only was the experience such a good one for him, the priest talked about Mother the whole time, using her as an example to the advice that he gave her!!!.

Mother Teresa is the embodiment of what I consider to be a Catholic and follower of Christ. I constantly reflect on her life and writings about what it means to truly love Jesus. I use her as a source of strength when I fight for my son who has special needs. While he may not be materially poor, he is “poor” in other ways. Recently, as we were advocating for his needs at school, and the school district was fighting us at every step and attacking our family in a very personal matter, I thought I couldn’t take any more. I was experiencing great anxiety and broke down and cried. I prayed to Mother Teresa for the strength to fight for him, and asked that she help. At that moment my heart was literally stilled—slowed from its racing beat and my tears stopped. I experienced such a tremendous feeling of peace that I knew that she had heard my prayer. It has given me great hope and strength to fight for those who are less fortunate—even if it hurts and takes great personal sacrifice.

I was never very familiar with Mother Teresa; I remember seeing her on TV or people talking about her. Today I wished I could met Her, I was just now on computer doing some search and somehow her name and her picture come out. I have to say,''something about her eyes touched me and I found myself in tears.

Three years into my conversion, I started reading books about Mother Teresa. At that time I was 28 years old. I loved her books because you didn't have to be an intellectual to understand them and because she demonstrated that God loves you no matter where you were in your life, whether in a mansion or in the slums. I learned that we mean so much to him and that the only thing he wants from us is our complete Yes, and to obtain this one has to learn how to empty oneself so that he can use us as "his little pencils." Through the Holy Spirit, she has taught me about humility and even though I still struggle with this, I have come a long way, I think. She continues to be one of my inspirations to live and love Christ above all things.

 

I first came in contact with Mother Teresa when my oldest son was dying of AIDS. We were caring for him in our home when he could no longer care for himself. One of our other sons was his main caretaker. He was an actor, only 30 years old, and a graduate of Juilliard School in New York. A priest friend gave me a little book to read during that time and that is where Mother Teresa entered our lives. In the book, she was quoted as saying, "AIDS patients are the suffering Christ in disguise. They are wanted, they are loved, and they will go to God with pure hearts". I cannot even express what that meant to me. It touched the deepest parts of my soul. After our son died in 1993, I happened to be in San Francisco. For no real reason, my daughter and I passed by my own mothers’ former house, the house where she was born and my grandfather was a baker and had a bakery underneath the living quarters. We saw Missionaries of Charity standing outside the house and wondered why they were there. My daughter noticed a small sign in the window that said, "Gift of Love". I inquired about the house and was told it had been given to the Missionaries of Charity to care for the dying AIDS patients. I was overwhelmed. So the Sisters invited me to come there and visit the patients. I did just that and would go there every few months just to sit with these dying men and just be there. They had no one. I wrote a story about the whole experience which I entitled "Gift of Love". The Sisters encouraged me to send it to Mother. I did so and she replied in less than two weeks with a personal letter to me. I have it framed on my mantle. So the power of this magnificent woman has touched the entire globe in numerous ways and she taught me to see Jesus in the poorest of the poor. I pray to her daily. The Missionaries of Charity are the most joy filled women that I have ever encountered. It is like heaven just to be in their presence. They reflect God's love in the most humblest of ways. I love Blessed Mother Teresa and always will. While visiting the house one day, one of the Sisters said to me, "Judy, your grandfather was a baker and this was a house of bread. It is a House of Bread again as we bring Jesus to these dying men".
