    Brother Isaiah of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal (CFR) is a talented musician. A song in his new album was inspired by Saint Mother Teresa. According to the CFR site: Mother Teresa once said: ‘Prayer is not asking, Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.’ These are the words inspired Br. Isaiah’s single, “Receive Me.”

    You loosen my grip on life
    You lighten my heart with your love
    You relax my soul in your tender arms
    And you quiet my heart
    In this love-filled silence
    Yes you quiet my heart
    Oh, love
    To your hands, my life
    To your path, my feet
    To you oh Lord, I abandon everything....

    Brother Isaiah’s EP Broomstick is available on iTunes and Amazon.

    How wonderful to have this wonderful woman as a Saint in our Church. I am one of those people that Pope Francis mentioned who is going to have trouble calling her Saint Teresa. To me, she will always be Mother Teresa.

    One of the stories that I love about her is this one told by Mgr John Esseff, her former spiritual advisor. I don't go see movies much anymore, but will go see this one about Mother Teresa's: The Letters

    Mother Teresa, pray for us!
