In preparation for the 100th anniversary of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta’s birth, her Missionaries of Charity begin their preparations today, 7 June, at the Cathedral of St. Patrick. (See article by Catholic New York)
Today, between 2 and 4:30 pm, relics of Mother Teresa will be on display for public veneration, including her crucifix, rosary, and sandals.
At 7 pm, Archbishop Celestino Migliore will celebrate Mass.
Also present will be the editor of Mother Teresa’s letters and writings, Come Be My Light, Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C.
Many Dominican friars around the world have worked closely with the MC’s. This summer, two student brothers from the House of Studies who will be residing at St. Vincent Ferrer will be serving with the Missionaries in the Bronx.
Renowned spiritual author and Irish Dominican, Fr. Paul Murray, O.P., has written a book on the saint of Calcutta, I Loved Jesus in the Night. A short reflection by Fr. Murray based on his book can be found on our provincial website here.
