In the Shadow of Our Lady : Sharing Mother Teresa's Mystical Relationship With MaryBook - 2007
For Mother Teresa as well as for the rest of us, it is through Our Lady's presence that we find the grace and courage to stand at our own personal crosses. Summon the same extraordinary intercession and aid of Our Lady in your daily life through the example of Mother Teresa. ?Sitting with Mother Teresa, watching her tend to the sick and the dying, feeling the aura of holiness around her person, seeing her bent in prayer, lost in God ? how often I asked myself if I was not seeing something of Our Lady, experiencing a glimpse of the Virgin of Nazareth? ? Author and co-founder of Mother Teresa's Priest Community, Joseph Langford, MC From dawn to dusk, decade to decade, Mother Teresa's life had been spent, in every sense of the word, in the shadow of Our Lady. Our Lady was a core element in Mother Teresa's own self awareness and day by day, intimacy became transformation. Mother Teresa's perseverance in living Mary's example over fifty long, faithful and fruitful years shows us that there is a meaning to all that happens, and that there is a God who watches over all even when he is neither seen nor felt. Our Lady helps us, as Mother Teresa found in her third vision, to become contemplatives at the foot of the cross ? to see in a new way the beauty of God's presence in us and around us. Nothing was impossible for Mother Teresa and nothing is impossible for all who call Mary mother.
