Mother Teresa of Calcutta was called from this world on September 5, 1997.

In my many conversations with her about the pro-life movement, it was very clear that she expected us not simply to pray but to intervene. She told me about how she went to the places where abortions were performed and took the women by the arm, away from that place of death and to her communities where they would find hope and life for themselves and their children.

Help us to honor Mother Teresa by joining the special novena we have posted at priestsforlife.org. You will find a prayer to say, and will be able to share with us how Mother Teresa has influenced your own life.

Above all, honor her by imitating her.
