More About Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Teresa & Angelo D. Scolozzi
Born in Skopje in 1910, MOTHER TERESA joined the Sisters of Loreto in Dublin in 1928 and was sent to India, where she began her novitiate. She taught at St. Mary's High School in Calcutta from 1931 to 1948, until leaving the Loreto order to begin the Missionaries of Charity. Through her sisters, brothers, and priests, her service of the poorest of the poor spread all around the world. She won many awards, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. After her death in 1997, the process for her sainthood was quickly begun and she was beatified in 2003.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta was born in 1910 and died in 1997.

A Useful Book for Our Busy Lives! Dec 9, 2008
In "Thirsting For God" you will find, as the previous reviewer said in their great review several excerpts from Mother Theresa. They are in form of daily writings starting on January 1st and ending on December 31st. You will also find writings from Angelo D. Scolozzi who was very close to Mother Theresa and who was responsible for compiling this great book. He tells of the times he witnessed Mother Theresa visit the homes of the sick and describes her by detailing his experinces with "Mother", as he called her, doing beautiful work for others in the loving name of Jesus!
I highly recommend this book to everybody who leads a busy life but wants to stay close to God through someone who devoted their life to Christ. "Thirsting for God" is not just for Christians but can speak volumes to people of all faiths because Mother Theresa was a witness of true love by her unconditional love for humanity.
Thirsting For God: A Yearbook of Prayers and Meditations May 11, 2000
Thirsting for God is full of the down-to-earth, all-loving wisdom of Mother Teresa. An excerpt from her writings, teachings, and speeches is presented for each day of the year with appropriate subject matter for the liturgical season--Advent, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, etc. Through these readings, Mother Teresa shares her orientation towards serving Jesus in the poorest of the poor and doing every little thing with great love. Our whole family from parents to our youngest, a three year-old, has enjoyed beginning the day with these simple stories and thoughts; we find ourselves meditating upon the great wisdom behind them throughout the day. This is a great book for anyone who wants to feel closer to Our Lord in their everyday life! As Mother Teresa says, "If you even stoop to pick up a pin on the floor with love, you do it for Jesus."
