A self-described pencil in God's hand and tireless servant of humanity, Mother Teresa never lost her focus on Jesus Christ, her light and her life. This saintly woman of God worked unceasingly for peace, not as a politician or grandiose leader, but as a humble, poor nun in the slums of Calcutta. Her unending joy in life and love for God and Jesus Christ radiated from her to touch millions around the world. From her words, her wisdom, her work, and especially the example of her life, we can draw strength and inspiration to help create the Reign of God on earth.

Popular author and EWTN host Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle presents a daily devotional companion for families with young children in Bringing Lent Home with Mother Teresa: Prayers, Reflections, and Activities for Families. O'Boyle illustrates how to bring Lent home, doing “small things with great love” under the guidance of the St. Teresa of Calcutta, with whom she enjoyed a close friendship. While many Lenten reflection booklets are for individuals or small groups, this one is formatted specifically for families and draws on the wisdom of Mother Teresa. This daily guide shows parents and children alike how to put her words into practice with practical suggestions on how to live the threefold call of Lent: to fast, pray, and care the poor. Each Sunday’s focus is drawn from the themes assigned to that Sunday of Lent and a project for the week ahead is suggested. The booklet is usable in all three Catholic lectionary cycles.

Mother Teresa's life sounds like a legend. The Albanian girl who entered an Irish order to go to India as a missionary and became an "Angel of the Poor" for countless people. She was greatly revered by Christians as well as Muslims, Hindus and unbelievers, as she brought the message of Christian love for one's neighbor from the slums of Calcutta to the whole world. Fr. Leo Maasburg was there as her close companion for many years, traveling with her throughout the world and was witness to countless miracles and incredible little-known occurrences. In this personal portrait of the beloved nun, he presents fifty amazing stories about her that most people have never heard, wonderful and delightful stories about miracles, small and great, that he was privileged to experience at Mother Teresa's side. Stories of how, without a penny to her name, she started an orphanage in Spain, and at the same time saved a declining railroad company from ruin, and so many more. They all tell of her limitless trust in God's love, of the way the power of faith can move mountains, and of hope that can never die. These stories reveal a humorous, gifted, wise and arresting woman who has a message of real hope for our time. It's the life story of one of the most important women of the 20th century as it's never been told before.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a twentieth-century icon, a living example of the power of love. She is now on the fast track to sainthood. This book marks the 100th anniversary of her birth on August 26th 1910. Irish people feel a special affinity with this tiny Albanian nun but it is often forgotten that the order she chose to join was an Irish one, the Loreto Sisters, and she spent time as a novice in Dublin. Her ties with Ireland remained strong. She returned many times, was given the Freedom of Dublin City in 1993, and at the height of 'The Troubles' in 1971 sent a group of Sisters armed just with bedrolls and a violin to Belfast to help "in whatever little way" they could. John Scally has drawn together the strands of these connections, speaking to many well-known Irish people about their encounters with Mother Teresa and her abiding influence on their lives. However, the heart of this extraordinary book is the author's never-before-published interview with Mother Teresa, in which she revealed her love for Ireland and her wishes for peace on this island.
