Much has been stated about Mother Teresa’s dark night and extended period of spiritual suffering. Why would God allow such an experience in her life and how does it appropriately apply to our personal suffering?
To tackle those questions, Dr. Mario welcomes Fr. Michael Champagne, CJC, superior of the Community of Jesus Crucified in St. Martinville, LA. Fr. Champagne is a wise spiritual director to many and an expert in the spiritual teachings of St. Teresa of Calcutta. In this episode, we discuss the impact of Mother Teresa’s humble upbringing on her vocational discernment, the reasons she started the Missionaries of Charity, her aforementioned decades-long spiritual suffering, and what it means to experience the thirst of Jesus.
