Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
We have all been created for greater things -- to love and to be loved. Love is love -- to love a person without any conditions, without any expectations. Works of love are works of peace and purity. Works of love are always a means of Becoming closer to God, so the more we help each other, the more we really love God better by loving each other. Jesus very clearly said, 'Love one another as I have loved you,' Love in action is what gives us grace. We pray and, if we are able to love with a whole heart, then we will see the need. Those who are unwanted, unloved, and uncared for become just a throwaway of society -that's why we must really make everybody feel wanted.

"There is something else to remember -- that this kind of love begins at home. We cannot give to the outside what we don't have on the inside. This is very important. If I can't see God's love in my brother and sister then how can I see that love in somebody else? How can I give it to somebody else? Everybody has got some good. Some hide it, some neglect it, but it is there."

From Barnes & Noble
In her charismatic, spiritual way, Mother Teresa offers advice on how we can practice a greater love for each other and help those less fortunate, discussing such issues as happiness, fear, faith, compassion, life, and death.

    This is an Incredible story

    This is a compelling story of Jesus commandment to Love your neighbor as yourself. She went well beyond that loving beyond love. The writing is engaging and I could not put the book down.

    Just junk: Simple missionary words leading to baptism

    The book is a piece of junk. It is an advise to people who want to go around the world and baptize the innocents by lure or deceit. Not any wise words. To get a better idea of what she really is read Christopher Hitchens book :'the missionary position....'
