In this beautifully written devotional, author and editor Heidi Hess Saxton gives us the life, writings, and prayers of St. Teresa of Calcutta to help us ready our hearts to welcome our Lord. The meditations, reflection questions, and applications on the daily liturgical readings draw us closer week by week to the coming of our Savior.

Advent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta: Daily Meditations
In celebration of the canonization of one of the Church’s newest saints, Servant Books is proud to present this small book of meditations for the seasons of Advent and Christmas, including special feast days associated with those seasons. Mother Teresa’s life and writings, marked by a spirit of humility, simplicity and love, encourage readers to quiet their hearts as they prepare to receive the Lord. The book includes a foreword by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, whose friendship with Mother Teresa has been captured in several of her bestselling books.
Heidi Hess Saxton’s Advent with St. Teresa of Calcutta captures the humble yet faith-filled spirit of this great lady of Calcutta. Each day of the Advent seasons, readers are invited to pray, and to consider what they might offer the Lord as their gift to him during this Christmas season. St. Teresa’s example calls readers to consider how they might love more deeply, surrender more completely, and let go of all the things they do not need, so there is more room to receive from the Lord all he wishes them to have.
For those who wander in darkness, St. Teresa of Calcutta is a true patron of joy yet to be discovered.
