The Papal Artifacts’ Collection is primarily dedicated to artifacts connected to the papacy. Individual popes, their biographies and multiple items belonging to them, including first and second class relics, make up the majority of this Collection. But that isn’t all it is.
Father Kunst has a deep devotion to the saints as can be readily seen in viewing the Saints & Blesseds section of this site. We invite you to visit Papal History/Saints & Blesseds to view the many canonized and beatified men and women who make up this section of the Collection.
A Letter from Mother Teresa, Dated March 7th, 1990 to Father Richard Kunst: A Reprimand for Requesting an Autograph
This letter is written on Missionary of Charity letterhead paper:
7th March, 1990
Thank you very much for your letter. More
important than autographs is what we do for Jesus
and for Him in others. “You did it to me” – for
I was hungry, thirsty, naked, homeless – look
around and see the loneliness, the pain – in your
own family first – then your neighbourhood and
friends – the poor in the hospitals and nursing
homes – do to them what you would someone to do
Pray the Rosary – put your hand in Mary’s hand and
allow her to lead you to Jesus. Help the poor,
the lonely, the unwanted – Be God’s love and bring His light into their lives.
God loves you—give Him your heart to love Him – y
Your Will to serve Him.
Keep the joy of loving Jesus ever burning in your
heart and share this joy with all you meet.
God bless you
Mother Teresa MC
