Product Description

Product Description

One part biography, one part prayer book, The Life and Prayers of Mother Teresa is an essential for any Christian.

Mother Teresa wanted to do “something beautiful for God.” At the time of her death in 1997, there were nearly 4,000 Missionaries of Charity Sisters established in 610 houses in 123 countries. The congregation did not cease growing with her death. Today, there are more than 5,000 Sisters. The work continues to thrive as the network of Missionaries of Charity continues to operate centers in countries throughout the world.

In 1985, Mother Teresa was invited to address the United Nations General Assembly. On that occasion, the Secretary General of the United Nations, Javier Pérez de Cuéllar, called her “the most powerful woman in the world.”

At the end of 1999, two years after Mother Teresa’s death, Gallup published a poll of America’s most widely admired people of the 20th century. Mother Teresa topped the list, ahead of such luminaries as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., Helen Keller, Winston Churchill, and Albert Einstein.

I never appreciated Mother Theresa so much. I am especially thankful for the mention of her "darkness". I will pray for her intercession.

Although many books have been written about this great and holy woman this is a good place to begin if an enjoyable read is what you're after. The book outlined her life and her work and finishing with the prayers for those who want them is a lovely touch. I did not archive this but will return to it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW DID SHE DO IT ? 25 May 2013
By Vickie Woodard - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought I knew Mother Teresa.I read the article in Time Magazine when she was awarded the Noble Prize. There she was: a quiet, bent woman.
And some idiot (in my opinion ) reporte was giving her grief because the sign on the Mother House, in big letters, said Mother Teresa's Sisters of Charity. Why didn't I take the time to challenge that doofus to work with Mother Teresa for just one week? After reading this book, I doubt he could have taken it. I know I couldn't.
In Mother Teresa's world, nothing was done without permission. When she felt something had to be done, she had to ask PERMISSION. And since the men above her might be promoted or moved, well, it could be a long, drawn out process.
This book tells where she drew her strength to last. It tells how she knew she had to do something, and it explains how being a woman in a man's world is not always a bad thing.
Mother Teresa made the world change, not for her, but for the people who needed it most. She was unafraid of disease, of robbery and of the many people who stood above her both literally and figuratively. There were secrets she kept until her death.
This book will tell you what they were.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Anyway" 24 May 2013
By Robert Mosko - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I know OF Mother Teresa, as many do. After reading this book, I know ABOUT her.

She was called to help the poorest of the poor, not for her own reasons, but you will need to read the book to find out why.

She cared for the poorest of the poor, in life and in death, without regard to their religion and she did not try to convert them to Christianity. If fact she insisted that their religion be respected.

She identified the differences in the causes of suffering in the "third world" nations and the "developed nations". The differences are stark, but she cared for those who suffered regardless of cause.

Mother Teresa lived as the poorest of the poor lived, yet she cared for them with a smile on her face. She always showed love to all.

She experienced darkness and doubt. You will have to read the book to find out why and its meaning. I do not want to give it away because it is important.

She was criticized for her kindness, but she was kind anyway.

"... In the final analysis it is between you and GOD. It was never between you and them anyway."

I thought I knew quite a lot about Mother Teresa but this book covers so much of her life. What a religious woman! How did she ever do it all? This is truly an in-depth biography of Mother Teresa. An added bonus are the prayers to lead you through your day.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good start to knowing a great woman of God 24 May 2013
By knighterrant - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
To many people around the world, the name Mother Teresa brings to mind an ethereal "good person," someone who became famous for her total dedication to God and His mission of caring for the poorest of the poor. Mother Teresa has been gone for almost two decades. Although her work continues and is growing, the woman behind the name is becoming lost, which is a shame.

Mother Teresa was a real person. Like the Apostle Paul, she knew both want and plenty in her young years. She saw Christian charity through the actions of her parents. She went to school. She went to church. Within that timeframe, God reached out, calling her to give her life to Him for missionary service.

Her first years in India were enough to qualify her as a good person and to fulfill her calling. However God had something more and reached out with what she called a "calling within a calling." In responding to that call, she had to convince others of its validity, she went through her own phases of doubt, she learned and grew. Out of that came the Mother Teresa known by the world today.

This book gives a good overview of and sometimes behind-the-scenes look at the life of Mother Teresa. It is a short book, not giving a detailed biography, but merely introducing the reader to an ordinary person who became extraordinary in the hands of her God. In that, she remains a good example of faith and the real actions which should grow from faith.

Because of the brevity of the book, many of Mother Teresa's critical life events come across as little more than lists. It would have been good to expand on some of these to help the reader see more of the real person behind the name. One of my hopes after reading the book is that it will challenge and inspire the reader to further reading and study of Mother Teresa.
