Light in the Darkness
Mother Teresa (1910 – 1997), was a Catholic nun and missionary who lived in India for most of her life. Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, which manages homes for people dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis as well as soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children's and family counseling programs; orphanages, and schools.
Teresa received a number of honors in her lifetime and was canonised in 2016. The following excerpts are from her dairy's and reflect the deep sense of divine absence. An absence that was a profound and important part of her spiritual life. I originally recorded this is 2011 as part of an ikon gathering. We titled it "Confessions of an Un/Believer".
