    The Dark Night of Blessed Mother Teresa (By Fr. Paul Murry)

    The Dark Night of Blessed Mother Teresa (By Fr. Paul Murry)

    Offering reflections from his book, "I Loved Jesus in the Night", Fr. Paul Murray provides a compelling account of meetings with the saint of Calcutta. Sharing anecdotes and first-hand experiences, Fr. Murray offers a glimpse into why Mother Teresa could declare, in one of her letters, that if ever she were to "become a saint," she would surely be one of "darkness."
    This very personal yet powerful presentation aims to come to terms with the dark night experiences endured by Mother Teresa 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!
    Paul Murray, O.P. is an Irish Dominican, a poet, and a professor in Rome at the University of St. Thomas, the Angelicum. He is the author of several books which have been published in Ireland, England, and the United States including The New Wine of Dominican Spirituality: A Drink Called Happiness; T.S. Eliot and Mysticism: The Secret History of "Four Quartets"; and four collections of poetry. He lives in Rome, and is well known as a speaker throughout the United States.
