Mother Teresa Jul 20, 2003
A simply written, yet very challenging, short book that captures Mother Teresa's thoughts and words of inspiration over her many years of service in India. It is great for devotional reading and reflection.... My favorite quote is: "The fruit of prayer is faith. Prayer leads us to say: 'I believe'. The fruit of faith is love. Faith leads us to say: 'I love'. The fruit of love is service. Love leads us to say: 'I want to serve'. And the fruit of service is peace.
Spiritual nourishment and a call to action Jul 17, 2003
Like all of Mother Teresa's words, this book is penetrated by deep love, devotion, and practicality. If you wonder how to love your neighbor as Christ loves you, or what it means to see Jesus in the Other, then this book is a great read.
My only complaint is that since it is a collection of her speeches and an interview, the anecdotes are almost all the same, lending itself to much repetition. Even so, her words bear repeated reading and contemplation as they are born out of a lifetime of prayer and sacrificial love.
I would suggest that you buy her "A Simple Path" before this one.
You may also enjoy "Father Arseny" as an incredible true tale of a man who burned with the love of Christ in Soviet prison camps.
excellent, thought provoking, and perspective changing Jun 10, 1999
Mother Theresa brings a new perspective on how each person we come into contact with is Jesus. This book will not only bring you to a more compassionate view for the poor, but also for those around you- wherever you are. Take your time and read it through slowly to get all that you can out of it. She has a powerful message for each person on their journey wherever that might be.
