Mother Teresa of Calcutta was one of the most loved figures of the twentieth century, the founder of a congregation whose mission was to serve the poorest of the poor, a congregation started in 1950 in Calcutta, where the bleakest poverty exists and where the poorest died - and still risk dying - helpless in the streets.
The endless outpouring of books, essays, articles and biographies is evidence of the fascination this saint continues to exert, twenty years
Mother Teresa left us at the dusk of the old millennium, but her testimony continues to be a living message of hope for the new millennium which advances, among atrocities and flashes of beauty, desperate acts and outbursts of love.
This book tells her tale in secret turns and unusual ways.
"There are almost two hundred pages to this book, but one leads to the next and before you know it you’ve finished and want to read it again. Magnificent, moving, intense, the most beautiful book about Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and I've read them all. What does this book have over the others? Well, first of all, it is written with poetry, in a warm, refined, elegant style. The subject is treated with great attention to detail. It is clear that the author has done extensive research, and she also makes profound reflections. The result is a wonderful portrait of Mother Teresa, reading that is good for the soul, absolutely a worthy book to be recommended!" (Pietro, verified Amazon customer)
