WEDNESDAY MORNING BOOK CLUB

I LOVED JESUS IN THE NIGHT – TERESA OF CALCUTTA, A SECRET REVEALED by Fr. Paul Murray

By sharing anecdotes and first-hand experiences, Fr. Murray offers a glimpse into why Mother Teresa would declare in one of her letters, that if she were to “become a saint,” she would surely be one of “darkness.”  This very personal, yet powerful book is an attempt to come to terms with the dark night experiences she endured in the light of the Gospel and the mystical teachings of St. John of the Cross.  And something else as well…revelations of Mother Teresa’s sense of humor! Join us on September 13th at 10:00 AM in Room 107 of the Family Life Center.  Call MJ at 222-0608 to order a book.
