Jambrekovi? At the age of 18 Gonxha applied to the Irish Loreto sisters who had a mission in Calcutta was accepted by them and took the religious name Teresa in honor of Thérèse de Lisieux who was so much her inspiration She was sent to Calcutta and for almost twenty years lived life as a joyful and hardworking if unremarkable Loreto sister Nevertheless as Mother Teresa moved into her thirties Fr Brian traces how her spiritual life moved forward to be that of a mystic He traces two major though “hidden” moments in her spiritual life that would culminate in an eventual founding of the Missionaries of Charity at the age of 38 Regarding the first he states: Mother Teresa reached a key point in her spiritual development in 1942: She was so advanced on the path of holiness that she made a private vow – the first secret – with the permission of her confessor: “I wanted to give God something very beautiful” and “without reserve”: “I made a vow to God binding under [pain of] mortal sin to give to God anything that He may ask ‘Not to refuse Him anything’” Regarding the second “hidden aspect” in these years Fr Brian continues: Four years later what we now refer to as the second hidden aspect of Mother Teresa’s interior life took place In the years 1946–1947 after revealing to her that He wanted her to establish a new religious community – Missionaries of Charity – dedicated to the service of the poorest of the poor Jesus referred to her private vow: “In all my prayers and Holy Communions He is continually asking ‘Wilt thou refuse’” At this time she received a series of locutions visions and (most probably) had moments of ecstasy Her confessor Fr Van Exem wrote of her “continual deep and violent union with God” Years later she remembered that while in Asansol (where she was residing during the first half of 1947) “there as if Our Lord just gave Himself to me – to the full The sweetness and consolation & union of those 6 months – passed but too soon” It is an understatement on the part of Mother Teresa to assert that these moments of sweetness consolation and union passed “but too soon” The astonishing reality is that as soon as so to speak she hit the streets with her newly founded group of Missionaries of Charity in 1949 a darkness descended on her prayer life that would remain for fifty years We can only guess at the kind of suffering implied in statements such as the following: There is so much contradiction in my soul – Such deep longing for God – so deep that it is painful – a suffering continual – and yet not wanted by God – repulsed – empty – no faith – no love – no zeal – Souls hold no attraction – Heaven means nothing – to me it looks like an empty place – the thought of it means nothing to me and yet this torturing longing for God – Pray for me please that I keep smiling at Him in spite of everything Fr Brian explains that this was an experience of darkness in prayer similar to those described by many of the great mystics However the suffering involved in this strange grace was compounded for Mother Teresa by the fact that she did not understand what was happening to her Fr Brian explains that it would take eleven years before she would find a spiritual director who could help her understand this experience for what it was This spiritual director was the Jesuit Fr Joseph Neuner to whom Mother Teresa would remain forever grateful Fr Neuner a theologian of some prominence who taught in the Jesuit-run seminary of Poona not only recognized that Mother Teresa was passing through a dark night but also recognized that it had characteristics unlike those of the other mystics In a deceptively simple phrase Fr Neuner explained to Mother Teresa that her spiritual suffering was in fact “the spiritual side of her work” Mother Teresa expressed her gratitude for this insight: – I can’t express in words – the gratitude I owe you for your kindness to me – For the first time in this 11 years – I have come to love the darkness – for I believe now that it is a part 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 – More than ever I surrender myself to Him – Yes – more than ever I will be at His disposal We do well to note the significance of the phrase “a spiritual side of your work” By contrast with other mystics Mother Teresa’s dark night had a direct connection with the sense of abandonment experienced by the poorest of the poor She expresses her insight into this fact as follows: How cold – how empty – how painful is my heart – Holy Communion – Holy Mass – all the Holy Things of Spiritual life – of the life of Christ in me – are all so empty – so cold – so unwanted The physical situation of my poor left in the streets unwanted unloved unclaimed – are the true picture of my own spiritual life of my love for Jesus and yet this terrible pain has never made me desire to have it different – What more I want it to be like this for as long as He wants it In this last text we recognize Mother Teresa adding to a more direct account of her feelings a theological understanding of the meaning of the suffering through which she was passing Fr Brian takes care to explain this theology Mother Teresa with the help of Fr Neuner comes to recognize the mysterious identification that Christ makes with the poor in his work to redeem human kind In some mysterious way Christ continues to be crucified in the poor Furthermore in another mysterious way Mother Teresa was now sharing in the crucifixion in a spiritual manner While this dark night seems never to have lifted for Mother Teresa we know that she learnt to accept it with a kind of consolation that runs deeper than feelings What is more she was clear about the Christian belief that after crucifixion comes resurrection She was convinced that this suffering was not an end in itself but was related to the act of redemption whereby Christ will eventually bring an end to all suffering?” were a reminder of His longing for the poorest of the poor and an invitation to continue making Him known. made by Bengaluru-based Invento Robotics headed by Balaji Vishwanathan. who is leading the US
