St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta vowed to a life of chastity, poverty and obedience and to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor" as founder and member of the Missionaries of Charity. Her charitable works of love, selflessness, and activism both challenged and brought peace to the world. Pope John Paul II once asked, "Where did Mother Teresa find the strength and perseverance to place herself completely at the service of others? She found it in prayer and in the silent contemplation of Jesus Christ, His Holy Face, His Sacred Heart."
Draw into the silence and serenity of Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House. Come reflect in prayer and in communion with other women on the life of St. Mother Teresa and how her ~ and your ~ actions and love for others embody the Heart of Jesus.
