Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_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.

Meet the Author

Mother Teresa (1910–1997) was a nun among the destitute of the Calcutta slums who became one of the most beloved and highly respected women in the world. Recipient of many humanitarian awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, she was personally acquainted with popes, presidents, and royalty. She never hesitated, however, to do the most menial tasks, and one of her oft-repeated themes was the need for humility. Mother Teresa was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003; beatification is a precursor to sainthood.
