Archbishop Lori’s Homily: Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart

“Years ago, when I was a seminarian at Mt. St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, Maryland, the world-famous Mother Teresa of Calcutta came for a visit. Naturally, we were exited, and anxious to talk with her. Because the seminary rector knew what we were like, he warned us, within an inch of our life, to be on our best behavior. To the best of my recollection, we complied!

“Truth to tell, we were hoping she’d talk about her amazing exploits. ‘What was it like to win the Nobel Peace Prize?’ ‘Tell us how you got started serving the poorest of the poor in India.’ We wanted to know how her mission was going in Eastern Europe –behind the Iron Curtain, as it was then called. We wanted to know how she attracted so many vocations to the Missionaries of Charity.”
