Op-ed: When Mother Teresa came to Utah 44 years ago, the monks knew she would be a saint - Salt Lake Tribune

Monday, September 05, 2016

The evening before her visit, two monks picked Mother Teresa up at the airport. No one noticed them. A large crowd was there hoping to see the Osmonds, who arrived at the same time.On the big day, we arrived early for the mass. We waited anxiously with other guests for Mother Teresa's appearance. We sat in the back balcony of the monastery chapel, just behind where she would sit.She arrived quietly, wearing a black sweater, simple white sari robe with blue trim, and sandals with socks. She was tiny, with a worn, homely and wrinkled face and a bulbous nose. Still, even my immature eyes saw her intense inner beauty.During mass, the monks gathered at the front of the church. As a male, I joined them, but monastic rules required women to stay in the back guest area. I felt privileged and regularly gloated to my mother and sister, Karen, about this special status.During Mother Teresa's visit, my mother and sister turned the gloating tables around on me. While I was up front, the congregants were invited to greet each other. Mother Teresa turned, shook hands with my family and warmly spoke to them. My sister later pointed out, several times, how I did not get to shake the living saint's hand. I am still jealous.In her Huntsville talks, Mother Teresa told how her Calcutta house for the dying was in a temple formerly dedicated to a Hindu goddess. Many Hindus objected to her presence there and protested, shouting, "Kill Mother Teresa!" The loud demonstrators disturbed her patients, so she confronted them, saying, "You want to kill me? Kill me! I'll go to Heaven, but you must stop this nonsense!"They stopped it. Later, the protesters brought her a Hindu priest stricken with tuberculosis. No other hospital would take him in. Mother Teresa did, and she personally cared for him until he died peacefully in the former temple.A month after we saw Mother Teresa, a newspaper article briefly reported her visit. Of course, now we all know the rest of her story: 1979 Nobel Peace Prize; 1997 state funeral when she died the same week as her friend Princess Diana; her face on a 2010 American postage stamp. Finally, Pope Francis canonizing her as a saint Sunday.Few people predicted all of this in the fall of 1972, yet the Utah monks were ahead of the news cycle. They knew Mother Teresa would be known worldwide, respected and loved for who she was and what she did.Knowing the monks as a boy provided me with a living education about the virtues of simplicity and compassion...
