Great Quotes, but ... Dec 30, 2003
This book has been one of my daily prayer books for close to ten years. The quotes are beautiful, powerful and short -- just right for the purpose of meditating on one per day.
However, the thoughts are not in logical sequence. For example, quotes on humility and confession are spread over a few chapters and the rationale/need for humility is not put upfront first, followed by the attributes of humility and how one can practice it.
This is what it IS really all about... Jul 24, 2001
Mother Teresa returns to us and she lives in the words she wrote...but even more in the Words she lived....that is what this book is all about and what her life was all about... You do not just speak of God's love in Jesus, about loving the neighbor, you live it with a fullness of life that brings deep and abiding satisfaction. A kind of satisfaction that cannot be bought...but in this book this can be found. Here is where the heart is found... in giving it away. Thanks again to Mother Teresa for continuing to remind us of what brings the Greatest Joy of Heart or life.
