BISHOP’S HOUSE
BALASORE – 756 001

26th September, 2016

 

Dear Fathers, Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings from Bishop’s House, Balasore!


I. ST. TERESA OF KOLKATA

The Catholic community in India feel proud to have Mother Teresa as St. Teresa of Kolkata. Though many of us watched the Canonization ceremony on television, Bishop Thomas who was present at St. Peter’s Square during the occasion, shares the following:

“The historic and thrilling event of the Canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta took place in Rome on 4th September 2016. It was a matter of great joy for me to be personally present in Rome for it and I cherish vivid memory of it. I was personally acquainted with Mother Teresa. Besides 400 Bishops from all over the world, a large number of Priests, Religious Sisters an estimated crowd of five lakhs personally witnessed this spectacular and unique event in St. Peter's Square. It was really marvellous.

What has attracted such a large multitude to Rome for the Canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta? Her deep intimacy with Jesus through daily prayer and the consequent experiences transformed her to be a person of committed service to the people of all walks of life and especially to the poorest of the poor. The people acclaim that what she preached, she carried out in action with the grace God in spite of the various challenges she had to face. She responded with faith and humility her special call to go to the slums of Calcutta. “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink." (Mt.25, 15). Mother Teresa said:"My progress in holiness depends on God and myself-on God's grace and my will. We all are instruments in the hands of God to experience his love and to take it to all people."

The Missionaries of Charity are rendering their services in nearly 100 countries. Let us pray that they experience more and more the love of Christ and render their committed services especially to the poorest of the poor. Mother Teresa has left a great legacy for the Missionaries of Charity. She prayed very much for peace in the world. "The fruit of love is service. The fruit of service is peace."


With regards and Blessings

Thomas Thiruthalil, C.M.
Bishop Emeritus of Balasore
