Mother Teresa, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, is considered one of the greatest humanitarians of modern times. Her selfless commitment changed lives and inspired millions throughout the world. The Letters is a biopic film, to be released tomorrow, on Mother Teresa as told through personal letters she wrote over the last 40 years of her life. Some may find it a surprise that even a woman of her strength, faith and stature was a troubled and vulnerable woman who grew to feel an isolation and abandonment by God.
The story is told from the point of view of a Vatican priest tasked with investigating acts and events following her death. The story unfolds between 1946 and 1952 when Mother Teresa left her position as a headmistress of the Loreto Convent school in Calcutta to live and work among the “poorest of the poor.” Then in 1950, she started her own congregation called the Missionaries of Charity.
Mother Teresa was someone who gave so much of herself, I wonder if part of her doubts and vulnerability came from compassion fatigue, and if so, how did she deal with it? By falling back on her faith would be the best guess. It is an inspiring story about the greatest humanitarian of our lifetime, watch it if you have the chance.
