Special EWTN shows on Mother Teresa!

Remembering Mother Teresa

September was an important month in the life of Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta. She “got the call within the call” to leave her convent and take to the streets on Sept. 10, 1946 and she was “born into eternal life” on Sept. 5, 1997. In the upcoming week, EWTN honors this “Saint of the Gutters” with four special programs:

• A Light in the Darkness of Our Days: St. Mother Teresa’s long-time friend and spiritual director, Fr. Michael van der Peet, SCJ, offers some striking reflections on the life and spirituality of the saint. Includes a discussion of the highly publicized “dark night of soul,” which Father described in his best-selling book, “Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light.” ( 3 a.m. ET and 6:30 p.m. Sept. 4.

• Remembrances of Mother Teresa of Calcutta: Colleen Carroll Campbell, host of EWTN’s “Faith and Culture Series,” interviews some of St. Mother Teresa’s closest companions as well as her lone surviving relative, who share their personal experiences with this great saint. 2 p.m. ET Sept. 5.

• Mother Teresa: The Legacy: This program is an intimate presentation of the life, ministry, and spirituality of St. Mother Teresa. 2 a.m. ET Sept. 6, 10 a.m. ET Sept. 10 and 2 p.m. ET Sept. 12.
