Father O'Connell Discusses Mother Teresa Letters on CNN

Very Rev. David M. O'Connell, C.M., appeared on CNN's "The Situation Room" on Aug. 24 to discuss Mother Teresa's personal letters, which revealed her personal struggle with her faith. A new book, Come Be My Light, details Mother Teresa's questions about religion and God through her letters. Father O'Connell said he felt that this will actually strengthen her case for canonization because she continued to work in the name of God even though she was questioning God's presence.
