To all members of M.E.V.,
Today is one of the special feast days of our Society,
the Feast of Blessed Mother
Teresa of Calcutta.
She personally supported and
encouraged the work of Priests for Life, and in my
discussions with her in Calcutta, we also conversed
about the idea of a community, like the one we have just
established. Her life and teachings are, along with
Evangelium Vitae, one of the cornerstones of the
spirituality of the M.E.V. Society.
If you look up “Mother Teresa” on
this website, you’ll find a number of articles and
reflections about our interaction with her, and her
support of our work.
May this feast today lead us to a
deeper reflection on and imitation of her life and
To all Lay Associates,
What a blessing to hear personally
from the Founder of the Missionaries of the Gospel of
Life! It helps me to better appreciate the seeds of
influence that inspired Father Frank, and the
establishment of this Society of Apostolic Life. Let us
fulfill his hope for our formation today.
We are united together in extending
the Gospel of Life on earth as in Heaven.
