“I can’t express in words — the gratitude I owe you for your kindness to me — for the first time in … years — I have come to love the darkness — for I believe now that it is part of a very, very small part of Jesus’ darkness & pain on earth. You have taught me to accept it [as] a ’spiritual side of your work’ as you wrote — Today really I felt a deep joy — that Jesus can’t go anymore through the agony — but that He wants to go through it in me.” — Letter from Mother Teresa to Rev. Joseph Neuner, Circa 1961
“Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light,” a book by the Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk, who is overseeing her cause for sainthood, looks to be an intriguing read into the spiritual journey of Mother Teresa. The book is already No. 3 on Amazon’s bestseller list with its release set for Sept. 4.
Her doubts in her faith and the darkness and emptiness she said she felt for many years are revealed in her letters printed in Kolodiejchuk’s book.
