Overview

A brush with fame blossomed into something far more spiritual, much longer lasting and infinitely more beautiful...

Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle will never forget the first time she laid eyes on Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Hunched, frail, not much taller than Donna's six-year-old daughter, the aging servant of the poorest of the poor cut an unassuming figure awaiting the start of Mass with Her Missionary of Charity sisters. They would speak briefly after the liturgy Mother Teresa wanted to meet the mother of such reverent and grace-filled children and then spend the next ten years intermittently sharing hopes, dreams, and prayers through the mail and in face-to-face conversations.

With Mother Teresa and Me, Donna-Marie invites you to step inside her deeply personal experiences with one of the greatest souls of modern times. Take her up on the offer and don't be surprised if you, too, find your heart blessed and your soul inspired by the diminutive nun who left an enormous impression on Donna-Marie and on the whole world.

Donna-Marie Cooper'O Boyle is a widely published author, popular speaker, and EWTN host. Her books include A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers (Our Sunday Visitor), Catholic Prayer Book for Mothers (Our Sunday Visitor), Catholic Saints Prayer Book (Our Sunday Visitor), A Catholic Woman's Book of Prayers (Our Sunday Visitor), and more.

    Reading "Mother Teresa and Me" by Donna- Marie Cooper

    Reading "Mother Teresa and Me" by Donna- Marie Cooper O'Boyle we learn lessons in loving Jesus. To get a glimpse into the spirituality of Mother Teresa from someone who was by her side and also in communication with her through letters is something to be treasured. This is a book I will keep bedside to be read and re-read for the spiritual treasure it holds. It is interspersed with pictures and letters of spiritual encouragement of Mother Teresa giving hope to readers that we too may become holy. This book is easy to read and captivates the reader right at the start from the first line in the Forward by Teresa Tomeo and on to the Introduction chock fu of wisdom. This book from start to finish will be an inspiration and lead us to a greater desire to love Jesus with all our heart. Lisa

    I want to start off by stating that I read this book cover to cover(191pgs) in less than 8 hours(while taking care of 3 kids), which is something I had never done before. I could NOT and would NOT put this book down. I have never been so moved or captivated by a book in my life. It is a rare and personal look at a very special one of a kind friendship. Donna-Marie is such a wonderful writer who lets you in and shares her personal relationship with Mother. She shares her personal correspondance with Mother so that we can for ourselves read about just how amazing, inspirational, motivational, thoughtful, & generous Mother was to her. I would recommend this book not just to Mother Teresa followers but for anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with Jesus. I believe that everything Mother Teresa said and did made her a living example of Christ for us. I found so much comfort and support in this book while reading Mother's words about suffering. If you want to love Jesus more you must understand his suffering and no one understood this better than Mother Teresa. Thanks Donna-Marie for writing such a thought provoking, life changing, & inspirational book.
