Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Much better known for practicing her faith than for preaching it, Mother Teresa speaks in this anthology of her teachings and sayings. "We all know that there is a God who loves us, who made us," she writes. "Holiness is not a luxury for the few; it is a simple duty, because if we learn to love, we learn to be holy." Mother Teresa, founder of the international order of nuns called the Missionaries of Charity and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, speaks simply, joyfully. Sometimes, she's gently funny: "Someone once asked me, `Are you married?', And I said, `Yes, and I find it sometimes very difficult to smile at Jesus because he can be very demanding." She always speaks to the heart about matters such as prayer, love and work, Jesus, poverty and the poor, and suffering and death. Included in this collection are a brief biography and an interview with Mother Teresa. This stirring collection adds one more facet to the portrait of a woman who has become a worldwide model for self-sacrifice and charity. (Feb.)
