Called to Answer Christ's 'Thirst' for Souls

The following, by the late Fr. George Kosicki, CSB, originally appeared in our Friends of Mercy newsletter.

On Sept. 10, 1946, while riding on a train to Darjeeling, Mother Teresa felt Christ's words from the Cross - "I thirst" - impressed upon her heart.

She referred to this calling as her "vocation within a vocation," a calling to serve Christ "among the poorest of the poor."

Christ's thirst

My Friend, the Saint

Susan Conroy never expected to be at the historic canonization of her friend Mother Teresa - but Our Lady found a way for her to get there. You see, Our Lady has opened doors for Susan before. So when major American media outlets including CBS News, NBC News, and EWTN asked her to be part of their commentary for Mother Teresa's canonization, Susan credited Our Blessed Mother for providing this opportunity. She would be present to see Mother Teresa - her friend of 11 years - be canonized at St. Peter's Square in Rome on Sunday, Sept. 4.
