Mother Theresa’s letters have been published which allegedly indicates that she had a life-long spiritual struggle; feeling the absence of God in her life, having “darkness” within her, and lacking faith. Since Mother Theresa is usually depicted as the epitome of Catholic saintliness, how should we respond to those Protestants who may use these letters as evidence that Catholicism is spiritually bankrupt and only produces anxiety in a person because of its “works salvation” gospel? Many anti-Catholic Protestants will say that Mother Theresa’s spiritual struggle is evidence that she was not really saved. Have any of you experienced a similar spiritual struggle? How has Catholicism enriched your spiritual life, especially if you are a convert from Protestantism?
