This book includes correspondence (and context for understanding it) from Mother Teresa's early years in religious life and throughout her years as founder of a new religious community. This correspondence reveals Mother Teresa's struggles, doubts, and her sense of abandonment by God. These revelations can encourage and strengthen us as she reveals her abiding faith despite darkness and trials.

Missionary of Charity Father Brian Kolodiejchuk met Mother Teresa in 1977 and joined the Missionaries of Charity Fathers at the time of their foundation in 1984. He is postulator of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and director of the Mother Teresa Center.

    " one of the joys of reading this book is seeing that even saints feel far from God and that putting one foot in front of another is sometimes the only way to walk in faith when you no longer see the light...also that saints, as all humans have BIG stinking flaws. "

    " Too much Catholic jargon made it hard to get into and understand. I'm looking for a better book about this amazing woman and her work. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Malina | 2/4/2014

    " I am not finishing this book. It was not what I expected. It is not so much about her life as about why she should be a saint. I will look for another more accessible biography. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/30/2014

    " Incredible that someone could have so much faith and so much doubt at the same time. Mother's humility and selflessness make me reconsider every decision of mine, she's such a reflection of Christ. "
