Now I Don’t Feel Quite So Badly…

with 6 comments

images2.jpg…when I have a crisis of faith, or even doubt the very existence of the God I was taught! If Mother Teresa can go for 50 years without sensing Him and still do all that she did in His name, then my questions and doubts seem like no big deal! Interesting article about the soon-to-be-published book compiled of her letters to confessors.

  1. I have such mixed feelings on this. I’m still processing.

  3. So she had a dry period in her marriage – a lot of people do. 😛

  4. Perhaps the book explains it better, but the article confused me on whether she ever felt His “presence” prior to her “dry period” or if she was always praying away in an unrequited sort of way her whole life. It says there was a “five week break” at some point, so what happened then? What classified it as a “break” in the absence of God dry spell? Either way, touched by “God” or not, it just goes to show you that helping people, being a true giver and helper, doesn’t HAVE to be linked to divine inspiration or a connection with any God. God doesn’t have to be yakking in your ear on a daily basis to go out and do something good for your world. Though the thought, be it right wrong or cynical, that crossed my mind was, “perhaps she was busting her butt to help people all the time to prove to God she was good and to get him to show her His love?” She wouldn’t be the first woman on the planet to be bending over backwards for a man’s affection, that’s for sure 😉
