Monsignor Francis Gomes, the retired Vicar General of Calcutta, offered a conference last Saturday at the Missionaries of Charity mission in Newark, New Jersey. Monsignor Francis spoke about his "Journey of Faith with Mother Teresa", a book he wrote and published in 2013.He was appointed by Mother to be the confessor of the novices at the Circus Formation House, and in 1990 he was appointed to be confessor to the Senior Sisters at Mother House.Monsignor offered many beautiful stories and incidents about Mother Teresa, many never revealed before.
In Monsignor Francis' book he says "In the eyes of faith, I believe that the Lord in his Divine Providence had provided this space for me, and to be his instrument which brought me closer to Mother in some of the critical moments of her life. This experience of the journey of faith with Mother, and the written witness of the same, may bring benefit to all those who have great love and admiration for Mother and are ready to follow the path of her spirituality."
** Monsignor's book is titled "A Journey of Faith with Mother Teresa", dedicated to the Missionaries of Charity.
"Give yourself fully to God. He will use you to accomplish great things on the condition that you believe much more in His love than in your own weakness." Blessed Mother Teresa
