The National Post ran an article entitled MOTHER TERESA’S PAIN AND DOUBT
Letters Reveal How She Secretly Struggled With Her Spirituality
In letters to her confessors and superiors Mother Theresa wrote “If there be no God, there can be no soul. If there be no soul then, Jesus, You also are not true.”
Does this mean that Mother Theresa was not a Christian?
Personally I think that an inner struggle with the reality of God is not a bad thing it allows us to think on the big questions of why is the world as it is if there is a God.
Mother Theresa of all people saw the worst of the world, the poor the starving the ill, If she did not struggle with the reality of God she would to me be less of the person she was.
We all struggle with the feeling of separation from God but we have less reason than Mother Theresa.
It bothers me that people seem to think this is a sign of weakness in one of the greatest humanitarians of this era.
We are Christians but we are also human.
