Un Alto en el Camino by Xavier I. Wiechers - An experience helping Mother Teresa in Calcutta

Un Alto en el Camino, which means "A Pause in your Path", was written in 2003 by Xavier Wiechers. The book describes graphically an unforgettable adventure into the depths of Calcutta, experiencing first hand with the destitute and the dying, with the support and friendly help of the Missionaries of Charity, an order started by Mother Teresa.

The principles and facts analyzed in such simple way of understanding, makes easier for the common reader to engage into deep analysis. A real treat! (The book is written in Spanish)

Some comments received from readers:

“A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!” - Elena Rauh-Hain, Mexico City

“A BOOK WITH POTENTIAL TO CHANGE YOU; SHOULD BE TRANSLATED TO ENGLISH SOON!”. - Osé Cabrera, San Diego CA.

“I HAVE READ FEW BOOKS WITH SUCH EASY WAY TO ANALYZE PROFOUND PRINCIPLES; IT SHOULD BE READ BY EVERYONE INTERESTED IN HIS/HER OWN LIFE”. - Elena Haase. Palos Verdes, CA

IT IS REALLY A “STOP ON OUR WAY”; WIECHERS DESCRIBE AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE IN CALCUTTA, AS A PROLOGUE FOR A FINE ANALYSIS OF WHAT CHRISTIAN LIFE MEANS. - M. Rodriguez, Mexico City

I READ IT VERY SLOWLY, CHAPTER BY CHAPTER, TO BE ABLE TO EXTRACT ALL THE “JUICE”. REALLY LIKED IT! - Anita V. Figueredo MD, La Jolla, CA.

Through his long time relationship with the Missionaries of Charity Fathers, and the always-attractive presence of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Xavier Wiechers has delivered this spiritual document worthy of a serious consideration.

MOTHER TERESA AND THE MISSIONARIES OF CHARITY

This Order was started in Calcutta by Mother Teresa, and has two branches in Bangalore which takes care of the destitute, abandoned and dying of all Castes and Religions. It survives on the Love of God, and by donations given by persons of all Faiths. They reach out to the poorest of poor, and take the old people and children into their premises and look after them with the Love of the Lord, bathing their wounds and helping those who are dying to die with dignity and surrounded by the Love of the Lord.

Mother Teresa (Agnes Gonxha Bejaxhiu) was born in Albania on 27th August in 1910. She entered the order of the Sisters of Our Lady of Loreto at the age of 18, and took the name of Teresa. She taught in the Order's school in Calcutta until 1946, when she experienced what she described as a "call within a call" to aid the desperately poor of India in a way that required she leave her Convent. She received permission from Rome to do this and began her work by bringing dying persons from the streets into a home (Kali-Ghat) where they could die in peace and dignity. She also established an Orphanage. Slowly other women joined her, and in 1950 she received official approval for a congregation of sisters, called the Missionaries of Charity, whose members are dedicated to serving the poorest of the poor. Mother Teresa was awarded the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize.

In 1985, she suffered from a heart attack while in Rome visiting Pope John Paul II. In 1989, she suffered another almost fatal heart attack and had a pacemaker implanted. In 1991, she suffers pneumonia in Tijuana, Mexico which leads to heart failure. In 1996, Mother Teresa suffers malaria, chest infection and undergoes heart surgery. On March 13th 1997, Sister Nirmala is selected as Mother Teresa's successor. Finally on September 5th 1997, The world learns that Mother Teresa "Angel of Mercy" had died at the age of 87 on Friday 1997 in Calcutta, incidently, this was also the day of Lady Diana's funeral in England. (Mother Theresa)

"To show great love for God and our neighbor we need not do great things. It is how much we put in the doing, that makes our offering something beautiful for God." Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Un Alto en el Camino por Xavier Ignacio Wiechers Escandon

“Un Alto en el Camino” por Xavier Wiechers, es un libro sobre los sucesos y enseñanzas de su vida, así como las memorias de la relación que tuvo con la Madre Teresa de Calcuta, y con la orden de los Sacerdotes Misioneros de la Caridad, que también Fundó la Beata Madre Teresa, y a quienes les proyectó y construyó su Seminario ubicado en la ciudad de Tijuana, Baja California, México.

El libro está dedicado a los Cristianos interesados en superarse espiritualmente y que, reunidos en grupo, lean, analicen y decidan cambios en su vida que les permita su crecimiento y el conocimiento mayor de Dios.

Entre los capítulos del libro se destaca el capítulo número uno, dedicado a la experiencia que vivió el Arquitecto Xavier Wiechers cuando viajó y vivió por varias semanas a Calcuta, India; ayudando directamente a las hermanas de la Caridad, en el edificio de nombre Kali-Ghat, que el Gobierno de Calcuta ofreció a la Madre Teresa para que las hermanas recibieran a los indigentes y moribundos, a los más pobres de los pobres, a quienes les dan cuidado personal y los ayudan a bien morir.

Otros capítulos del libro, hablan sobre las Realidades Fundamentales de la Vida como: la paternidad, nada es nuevo y la incapacidad humana. También escribe sobre nuestra relación con Dios como humanos, nuestra relación con los demás y por último algunas consideraciones sobre “La tercera Edad”; con el objetivo de tener muy en cuenta a los demás, cuando llegan la vejez, el retiro, la enfermedad y la muerte; siempre con miras al camino de la verdad y la Vida Eterna.

“El objetivo fundamental es transmitir las experiencias que he vivido, y compartir algunos criterios sobre la vida que he recibido gratuitamente de nuestro Padre Dios, de mis padres, porque nadie recibe nada si no es para administrarlo en bien de los demás”, dice Xavier Wiechers en su prólogo.

Xavier I. Wiechers Escandón nació en la ciudad de México en 1936 y actualmente está retirado en San Diego, California donde sigue colaborando muy de cerca con los Padres Misioneros de la Caridad y con “Friends of the Poor” o Casa de los Pobres en Tijuana, BC México.
