The countless sweet photos of her smiling at babies showed Mother Teresa to be a single-minded advocate for the poor. But she was a woman with a will whose strength has been matched by few souls in history. Mother Teresa broke death's stranglehold on the poor of Calcutta, and she showed us how to conquer the sin and darkness in what she called the "slums of the hearts of modern man." Part biography and part spiritual reading, these pages bring to light little-known stories from Mother Teresa's life that will help you to grow in your love of God. You will learn her approach to reading Scripture, what enabled her to persevere through agonizing nights, and the remarkable some would say mystical events that led her to start the Missionaries of Charity. In considering Mother Teresa, her private visions, and her secret sufferings, David Scott has discovered scores of early episodes and chance encounters that point to later, larger meanings. These remarkable patterns, he suggests, show that Mother Teresa's life was choreographed from above, as if a divine script had been written for her from before her birth. In these pages, you will meet for the first time the Mother Teresa who challenged the ancient Goddess of Death and became the first saint of our global village. You will read as she describes, in long-secret letters, the dark night of her soul. The woman you will meet is one that God himself sent to you as a clear sign that despite pain and suffering in our lives and in our world, God's good love will prevail . . . beginning in the slums of our hearts. We are all called to holiness, and the saints are sent to us as "real life" examples of God's love. With Mother Teresa as your guide, you'll learn how to follow God's call and find holiness in a world marked by the shadow of death and growing indifference to God. Indeed, you'll learn how to be an everyday missionary of Christ's love in the ordinary activities of your daily life.

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.

In Six Stages on the Spiritual Path, we learn about spirituality and its stages as well as how spirituality helps to reduce our suffering and create more love. Writings from ancient to contemporary mystics across the world provide us with practical and spiritual wisdom that will make our lives happier and more loving. In the first stage on the mystic way, children experience awe and wonder, but they do not realize that this is a spiritual experience. While all indigenous people recognize awe as a mystical experience, only some adults and most artists do. When parents and religious leaders teach children about God, they cause their spiritual growth to flourish or to become stunted at an elementary school level. Awakening is an experience of the Divine that helps us realize that the Sacred Spirit is within us and loves us. Awakening produces love for our neighbors and ourselves. Then love nurtures more awakenings. Illumination and union are deeper mystical experiences that the Holy One is not only within all of us and all of creation, but also that we are within the ONE. Illumination creates more love for all people and all the universe.

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.

Mother Teresa’s relationship with God and her commitment to those she served—the poorest of the poor—is here powerfully explored in her own words. Taken largely from her private lessons to her sisters, published here for the first time, Where There is Love, There is God unveils her extraordinary faith in and surrender to God’s will. This book is in some way a sequel to Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, in which her own very private spiritual struggles were explained. Sent to alleviate the sufferings of the poor, she assumed their struggles and pain in the depths of her heart. This led to particularly intense anguish which she lived through with heroic courage and fidelity over several decades. As important as this aspect of her life is, that remarkable testimony of her life and her words intensifies the need and desire to know more of her thought. There is much she can teach us as we face our daily struggles or sufferings, which can at times be unusually severe. Where There is Love, There is God, though not an exhaustive anthology of Mother Teresa’s teaching, nonetheless shows what she believed and taught about important issues that confront all people. Due to her constant interaction with people of diverse backgrounds, no life situation was foreign to her and in this book her role is primarily one of teacher and guide. Love is perhaps the word that best summarizes Mother Teresa’s life and message. The title reflects what she proclaimed during her entire life: God is alive, present, and “still loves the world through you and through me”. Mother Teresa sought to be an extension of God’s heart and hands in the world of today. She was called to be a missionary of charity, a carrier of God’s love to each person she met, especially those most in need. Yet she did not think that this was a vocation uniquely hers; each person is in some way called to be a carrier of God’s love. Through the practical and timely advice she offers, Mother Teresa sets us on the path to closer union with God and greater love for our brothers and sisters. MOTHER TERESA (1910–1997) was born in Skopje (present-day Macedonia), and joined the Sisters of Loreto in Dublin in 1928. She left the Loreto order in 1948 to begin the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta. Her service to the poorest of the poor became her life’s work. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and was beatified in 2003. Editor of Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, FATHER BRIAN KOLODIEJCHUK, M.C., Ph.D., was associated with Mother Teresa for twenty years and is now director of the Mother Teresa Center, which has offices in California, Mexico, India, and Italy. “What you are doing I cannot do, what I’m doing you cannot do, but together we are doing something beautiful for God, and this is the greatness of God’s love for us—To give us the opportunity to become holy through the works of love that we do because holiness is not the luxury of the few. It is a very simple duty for you, for me, you in your position, in your work and I and others, each one of us in the work, in the life that we have given our word of honor to God.…You must put your love for God in a living action.” -Mother Teresa, From Where There is Love, There is God

In this wonderful book, "Live a Life of Love," you will go on a beautiful journey of new discoveries and needed basics about love. You will learn how to receive the love you need, how to feel love, give love, express love, and grow in love. While becoming more loving, you will also become more loveable. Even those in your constellation of relationships will reap the benefits of your reading and reflecting on this book. In these pages, you will read many delightful or touching stories. True stories, of course. We learn from stories, our own and other's stories. Each story will illustrate some aspect of love. There are so many facets to love! So many ways to love, and so many ways to express it. This book is for those who want to become a more loving person, without becoming Mother Teresa. You don't have to aspire to greatness, just seek to walk through each day with love in mind. In this way, you will patiently grow your stores of love and have more to enjoy and more to share. "Live a Life of Love" was birthed from my own very real struggles to learn how to love. In my younger years, I felt very alone, empty, unloved and unloving, and unaware of life's meaning. The turning point for me was when I decided to embrace a connection with God, for God is love. Still, how to love remained a mystery to me. I was raised in a cold place, but I wanted to live in a warm place. I was raised with a famine of affection, but wanted to serve a feast of affection, affirmation and kindness to my own family and friends. After meeting the author of love, my life became a quest to be a lover of God, myself and others - to learn how to effectively and extravagantly love all in my life, even those who sometimes make it hard to love them. One of the more difficult lessons was learning to love myself. But it was a key lesson. In this book we explore what it means to follow the great commandments of love: to love God, love yourself and love others. I am writing from a Christian perspective, but I believe anyone can find principles and guidelines in this book that will help them understand real love and learn to express it more freely. The book is designed to be used as a personal journey or in a group study session. At the end of each chapter, I've included a relevant quote, Bible verse and prayer to help you implement what you just learned in that chapter. Many people read a chapter a day and use the book as one would a devotional. It is also an excellent resource for use in Bible study groups or book clubs. Questions for group discussion are included for each chapter.As the songs say, what the world needs now is love, sweet love. All we need is love. Love is a many-splendored thing. And we all want to know what love is. Let me help you see more clearly what love is. Buy this book and learn more about living a life of love!

Mother Teresa was one of the most written about and publicised women in modern times. Apart from Pope John Paul II, she was arguably the most advertised religious celebrity in the last quarter of the twentieth century. During her lifetime as well as posthumously, Mother Teresa continues to generate a huge level of interest and heated debate. Gëzim Alpion explores the significance of Mother Teresa to the mass media, to celebrity culture, to the Church and to various political groups. A section explores the ways different vested interests have sought to appropriate her after her death, and also examines Mother Teresa's own attitude to her childhood and to the Balkan conflicts in the 1980s and 1990s. This book sheds a new and fascinating light upon this remarkable and influential woman, which will intrigue followers of Mother Teresa and those who study the vagaries of stardom and celebrity culture.
