Mother Teresa’s 1959 retreat – 12

Twelfth Day
Under the patronage of Mary, Queen of Heaven

Aim: Union with the Risen Jesus in His Great Glory; to acquire a great confidence in the goodness and greatness of my Redeemer

Examination: My Love for the Church

  1. Do I really look upon the Church as the “Mystical Body of Christ”?
  2. Do I burn with zeal to make the Church known and loved by all men?
  3. Do I try to conform my judgments with the directions given by the Church through the Encyclicals, Pastoral Letters, Directions, etc.?

Readings: Psalm 65; Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24; John 20 & 21

The Imitation of Christ: Book 3, Chapter 49

Reflections of the Day:

Joy to thee, O Queen of Heaven
He whom thou was meet to bear
As He promised, hath arisen
Pour for us to Him thy prayer.

When we stand sooner or later at his judgment seat, the questions put to us will be:

What have you done?
How have you done it?
Why did you do it?
