Father John J. Some meditations to intensify your spiritual lives in the Holy Season of Lent…. A few years ago on a pilgrimage to India and Tibet, this chaplain saw dramatic, spiritual things--some Christian, and some not; but all were inspiring, yanking me out of a "spiritual slumber" I had grown accustomed to…. One hot, Indian evening I entered Mother Teresa's house, in the heart of Calcutta, after a traumatic ride there passing oxen-led carts, open-air-camp fires and thatched, squatter's huts. Arriving at the evocative upstairs chapel I was awed to see a hundred nuns sitting on a bare floor, praying silently before the Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Right below us was a major roadway-akin to Fifth Avenue in New York City-which permeated the virginal cloister with the sounds of honking cars and trucks, open-air marketers selling their wares, cackling chickens, and Muslim evening prayer calls from nearby minarets-all creating a cacophony in the Bengal night. I thought: How could anyone pray here?!
