Missionaries of Charity Motherhouse

22 February 2009

This morning, we got up to go to a mass starting at 6am at the Motherhouse of Missionaries of Charity. We walked into the chapel and the nuns were singing which was a special start to the peaceful mass. After the mass, we were privileged enough to be shown Mother Teresa’s room by the Mother Superior.

It was a moving experience. Then we visited Mother Teresa’s tomb which was in beautiful white marble.

We got the chance to write our own intentions which are then prayed for by the Sisters.

The Sisters kindly gave us special prayer cards with Mother Teresa’s wise words on them, as a thank you for bringing the candles. The rest of the day was ours to explore the rest of Kolkata and its markets.
