Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This appealingly designed book has short spiritual reflections for each day of the year... This is not a touchy-feely volume of New Age affirmations, but a no-nonsense collection of entries that recommend humility, acquiescence to the will of God, service to those in need, and seeing Jesus in the poorest of the poor.

—William L. Keogan, Catholic Library World

"These 365 short daily reflections are an ideal way to take a break from life's busyness and stir up a desire for holiness... How to find and love Jesus—whether in the silence of prayer or in the faces of those we meet—is the recurring theme of Mother Theresa's words."

Catholic Digest

"This collection of daily readings offers the wisdom and example of Mother Teresa, who lived in challenging circumstances yet humbly surrendered to God. Each entry opens the reader to 'little practices of love' she recognized as opportunities for building a faithful life of service....We can do no better than to let all these words quench our thirst and guide our journey throughout the entire year."
