Today is Mother Teresa’s birthday. She would have been 100 years old today.
I was privileged to have been able to listen to Mother Teresa on two occasions, many years ago, when she came to the cathedral in Winona to speak with the priests, seminarians and others present at the time. Msgr. Philip Feiten of our diocese was for years the treasurer for the Missionaries of Charity in the United States, and he had invited here to come and speak.
She always had the same message of love for the poor, and she never excluded us Americans from the definition of the poor.
Blessed Mother Teresa, pray for us!
