Solely with Mother Teresa of Calcutta's words, Missionary of Charity Father Brian Kolodiejchuk has composed this powerful novena to the "Saint of Calcutta". These nine days of prayer seeking Blessed Teresa's intercession for a special need or intention can bring the one who prays many blessings, particularly the grace of a greater love for God. In prayer, we learn how to serve God joyfully in others, especially those most in need. Each day's prayer includes a petition to Blessed Teresa to "teach me to allow Jesus to penetrate and possess my whole being so completely that my life, too, may radiate His light and love to others."
Father Brian met Mother Teresa in 1977 and joined the Missionaries of Charity Fathers at the time of their foundation in 1984. He is postulator of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and director of the Mother Teresa Center.
