Publisher's Summary

This book includes correspondence (and context for understanding it) from Mother Teresa's early years in religious life and throughout her years as founder of a new religious community. This correspondence reveals Mother Teresa's struggles, doubts, and her sense of abandonment by God. These revelations can encourage and strengthen us as she reveals her abiding faith despite darkness and trials.
Missionary of Charity Father Brian Kolodiejchuk met Mother Teresa in 1977 and joined the Missionaries of Charity Fathers at the time of their foundation in 1984. He is postulator of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and director of the Mother Teresa Center.

Critic Reviews

"Mother Teresa's ministry with the poor won her the Nobel Prize and the admiration of a believing world. Her ministry to a doubting modern world may have just begun." (James Martin, S.J., Culture Editor, America magazine)
"Mother Teresa, sick with longing for a sense of the divine, kept faith with the sick of Calcutta. And now, dead for [over] 10 years, she is poised to reach those who can at last recognize, in her, something of their own doubting, conflicted selves." (The New York Times)
"Saints are not holy for themselves, but for all of us, their sisters and brothers. I believe this book will become a classic in spirituality." (James Van Vurst, O.F.M., St. Anthony Messenger magazine)

Amazing book, narration didn't feel right

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is beautiful.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The woman voicing Mother Teresa didn't really seem to capture her personality. Mother, at least according to times I have seen her talk and based upon peoples' descriptions of her, was a determined, focused, and almost spunky woman. The narrator in the audiobook had a breathy, sterile delivery that seemed almost stereotypical, like the porcelain statue of a saint.

Beautiful!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a beautiful look inside this Godly woman, who was anything but ordinary.She wanted no credit or glory, simply to serve the poorest of the poor.It went through her life and inner thoughts from youth through her life.Inspirational and encouraging to find the light within us all. Even in the darkest nights of her soul, she radiated love and light.She needed no money to feed and bless multitudes.Truly an Ascended Master!

"must-read" for all who care about spiritual life

Difficult to transmit the insight of this testimony of Mother Teresa. Most profound testament. She let herself to be a "victim" to the end. And even the fact that her personal letters remained for us all was against her human wishes. Thus she underwent a profound violence in human sense in many ways. I am immensely grateful to God for this.
