Mother Teresa will become a saint on September 4th. She was known as the “saint of the gutter” for her tireless work and unconditional love for the poor and abandoned. This month we honor and celebrate her dedication to Catholic Social Teaching and her witness to the gospel of life.
“May we never forget that in the service to the poor we are offered a magnificent opportunity to do something beautiful for God.” – Blessed Mother Teresa
Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta is known throughout the world as a woman totally committed to the Gospel. In the first presentation, she explains the infinite value of God’s gift of life; in the second presentation, she emphasizes the Eucharist and our call to imitate Christ by loving each other unconditionally. A bonus segment is provided by Dr. Scott Hahn on Understanding the Eucharist.
In an acclaimed film portrayal, Olivia Hussey illuminates the life story of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the selfless missionary who brought hope, love and salvation to the poorest of the poor. The movie examines the fundamental moments of Mother Teresa’s life from her childhood in Albania in the 1920s to her first calling as a nun, the decision to leave her order and live with the poorest of the poor, the vicissitudes of founding the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity, and her great work of service in Calcutta and the rest of the world.
