mother teresa - the role of doubt

By now most people have read about the crisis of faith that struck the great Mother Teresa for approximately fifty years. It seems that just about the time that she moved to Calcutta to work among the poorest of the poor, she lost her connection with God - at least the kind of connection to which she had grown accumstomed, the kind that is personal and intimate. A new book is out - "Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light" - that opens to the public a series of her private letters containing her darkest moments of doubt and loneliness.

What is the role of doubt in a life of faith? How do crises of faith affect our belief and our sense of wholeness in life?

For more on the subject, take a look at this article in TIME magazine.
