When Mother Theresa died on May 9, 1879, at the age of 82, the congregation had approximately 2250 sisters worldwide. As of today, we have 2410 living sisters in our congregation. “It was not the greatness of the number of her sisters that delighted Mother Theresa but their inward transformation to the image and likeness of our God.” (Monsignor Huhn, Eulogy for Mother Theresa). Let us continue to be in communion with our God, with each other and with the universe.
We pray in gratitude for her many gifts to us and ask her assistance as we live out the new directional statement, "Love Gives Everything." A prayer to celebrate her anniversary can be found here.
