Queen Elizabeth II met five popes in her lifetime. Pope Francis in his statement upon her death Sept. 8 promised prayers for her peaceful repose and praised her for ‘her example of devotion to duty, her steadfast witness of faith in Jesus Christ and her firm hope in his promises.’ Edward Pentin, the Register’s Rome Correspondent, who hails from England, joins us now to remember the Queen. Then EWTN News’ executive director Matthew Bunson and the National Catholic Register’s Jeanette De Melo discuss Mother Teresa and the film ‘Mother Teresa: No Greater Love’ marking the 25th anniversary of her death.
St. Teresa of Calcutta treated each individual with dignity and love, and her every encounter began with a smile.
Recognizing, adoring, loving and receiving Jesus in the Holy Eucharist propelled her to recognize, love, welcome and care for him under even the most distressing disguise of the poorest of the poor.
The Missionaries of Charity are the religious community that Mother Teresa founded in 1950.
Notable moments in the film include footage in Kenya, where the Missionaries of Charity are caring for children with deformities and serious developmental disabilities.
“Respect for the human person considers the other ‘another self.’ It presupposes respect for the fundamental rights that flow from the dignity intrinsic of the person.” (CCC 1944)
“Joy is prayer; joy is strength: joy is a net by which you can catch souls.” —St. Teresa of Calcutta
The missionaries normally help some 600 people at their Kolkata motherhouse and their children’s orphanage Shishu Bhavan.
