A native of Portland, ME and the 7th of 10 children, Susan Conroy was a student at Dartmouth College when she first traveled to India to work in the orphanages and homes for the dying. "Nothing I ever witnessed in my upbringing had prepared me for the poverty of Calcutta. I had to walk in the gutters because there were so many people actually sleeping and living in the streets." Susan's sesne of humor was an asset in India. "I'm not like St. Francis of Assisi; I don't like bugs, and in India there are lots of cockroaches and lizards. When the other volunteers pointed out that the lizards at the cockroaches, I grew to appreciate the lizards," she joked.
Susan was impressed with Mother Teresa's humility. She speaks of her "joy" in working with the orphans, the sick, and the dying. From Mother Teresa, she learned that "Joy is half the gift you bring."
Susan wrote a book about her experiences: Mother Teresa's Lessons of Love and Secrets of Sanctity. She also wrote Praying in the Presence of our Lord with Mother Teresa. Today Susan travels around the country giving presentations on her experiences with Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. Susan has made numerous television appearances for local as well as worldwide audiences. She has hosted a mini-series on EWTN called, "Speaking of Saints." You won't want to miss Susan's joy-filled testimony.
