Overview

No one can understand who Mother Teresa of Calcutta really was or how she accomplished all she has unless they first understand the way she loved.

The Best Gift is Love attempts to capture the essence of this remarkable woman in her own words and with beautiful black-and-white photographs.

Mother Teresa represents everything that many of us desire and yet find in such short supply: strength, peace, hope, and real joy. Her extraordinary example provides an alternative to a world which is often only too full of despair and hatred. She held in her two consoling hands the irreplaceable cornerstones of life: faith and love.

The Best Gift is Love brings you closer to the spiritual vision of this courageous woman. In its pages you will encounter her passion for God, her way of life, her way of love.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
In his introduction, Lovett recounts his visit to Calcutta and its squalor in order to understand Mother Teresa's way of love: as he holds the hand of a leper, he is enlightened. This set of 13 meditations, on topics such as purity, joy, hunger, forgiveness, suffering, the family, and vocation, illustrates Mother Teresa's love for the poorest of the poor, the path that underscores all her spirituality and that of the order, Missionaries of Charity, which she founded. According to her, suffering is a gift that relives Christ's passion and contributes to one's redemption. These meditations are important as for who wrote them, an influential Nobel Peace laureate, as they are for their content. Recommended for seminary and public libraries.
