Overview

At the Home for the Dying in Calcutta, Mother Teresa often cared for the residents as they approached the end. As she was ministering to one illness-ravaged man, a visitor overheard the whisper a few wordsto him. These few words embody Mother Teresa's spiritual wisdom. This is what she said: You say a prayer in your religion, and I will say a prayer as I know it. Together we will say this prayer and it will be something beautiful for God.

These gentle words of solace and care provide us with a glimpse at a Mother Teresa we've often overlooked: Mother Teresa, the universal teacher of prayer.

The world has admired the Mother Teresa who devoted her life to caring for the poorest of the poor everywhere. But her close associates knew that all of Mother Teresa's outer activity of caring and action was the natural consequence of her devotion, the overflow of her deep inner life. They witnessed her reliance upon contemplative practice, and they recognized Mother Teresa not only as a devout Catholic, but also as a great ecumenical teacher of prayer.

With this deeply profound collection of her writings on prayer, Mother Teresa offers guidance and inspiration for people of all faiths seeking to walk a spiritual path.

Editorial Reviews

Tikkun
Anthony Stern is probably the most sincere progressive voice attempting to bridge the insights of social psychiatry and spirtuality. It is no surprise, then, that this Jewish devotee of Martin Buber and Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav has found a universal spiritual song in the prayerful work of Mother Teresa. In this gem of a collection, Stern has gathered a number of Mother Teresa's prayers and thoughts about prayer. Transcendence without escape was the universal message of Mother Teresa, and no one has captured its essence better than Tony Stern in this quiet, powerful collection.
