Today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Bl. (Mother) Teresa of Calcutta!

Will you and I pray for her canonization (like she needs it, or we need to be told it)?

Will you and I make a difference today in the life of a poor person (emotionally and spiritually poor, as well as materially)?

Will you and I pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood and diaconate and religious life--especially those orders that have outreach to the poor as their special "charism"?

Today is also the commemoration of Our Lady of Czestochowa, so we can celebrate TWO "Blessed Mothers" and pray for faithfulness in the Church. We are indeed blessed in them.


  1. What beautiful sentiments you have evoked with these blessed women!

    It fills one with a peace that is so needed in these turbulent times.......

  2. Contemplation on a contempletive soul
    is akin to a spiritual balm, and promotes further contemplation.
