Meditations from a Simple Path by Mother Teresa Dec 27, 2005
This work typifies the simplicity of the life lead by the Mother Teresa. The major themes of the volume are as follows:
- The Fruit of Silence is Prayer. - The Fruit of Prayer is Faith. - The Fruit of Faith is Love. - The Fruit of Love is Service. - the Fruit of Service is Peace.
The layout of the book builds up to peace from the fruit of silence which is prayer. This is a spiritual rendition by the author born of modest parents some 95 years ago. It should be widely read by theologians , philosophers and academicians everywhere.
Encouraging Mar 4, 2000
This is a wonderful book. The layout allows you to read only a few of the entries or, if inspired, the whole book. As always, what Mother Teresa says is touching and simply profound. The meditations found in this book allow you to witness the beauty of a life of service.
