St. Teresa of Calcutta: Missionary, Mother, Mystic
Love the book…..I read each day and started again.
If you lived through the Mother Theresa era, as I did, you probably nknow a lot about her becasue she was often in the news. My mom met Mother Theresa in erson so I almost always did read the articles, except for the Time Magazine article which sounded from the title like it mighjt be a hit piece. That 'dark night of the soul' period' in Time Magazine is explained in this book along with a lot of things that I didn't know. Pretty quick read because the writing is very straightforward and the book is well oerganized. We all want to mirror the saints but when they are from medieval times or they spent their life in the desert it is a little hard to relate. This is a modern saint living out her life in a big city who is well worth emulating (to the degree that we can).
This was a good, serviceable biography. I would have appreciated a more in depth examination of her feelings of abandonment during the last 50 years of her life.
Well done...many new insights about St Teresa
