This historic work reveals the inner spiritual life of one of the most beloved and important religious figures in history.
During her lifelong service to the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa became an icon of compassion to people of all religions; her extraordinary contributions to the care of the sick, the dying, and thousands of others nobody else was prepared to look after has been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world. Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights or her struggles. This collection of her writing and reflections, almost all of which have never been made public before, sheds light on Mother Teresa's interior life in a way that reveals the depth and intensity of her holiness for the first time.
Compiled and presented by Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C., who knew Mother Teresa for twenty years and is the postulator for her cause for sainthood and director of the Mother Teresa Center, MOTHER TERESA brings together letters she wrote to her spiritual advisors over decades. A moving chronicle of her spiritual journey—including moments, indeed years, of utter desolation—these letters reveal the secrets she shared only with her closest confidants. She emerges as a classic mystic whose inner life burned with the fire of charity and whose heart was tested and purified by an intense trial of faith, a true dark night of the soul.
Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of her death, MOTHER TERESA is an intimate portrait of a woman whose life and work continue to be admired by millions of people.
Born in Skopje in 1910, MOTHER TERESA joined the Sisters of Loreto in Dublin in 1928 and was sent to India, where she began her novitiate. She taught at St. Mary's High School in Calcutta from 1931 to 1948, until leaving the Loreto order to begin the Missionaries of Charity. Through her sisters, brothers, and priests, her service of the poorest of the poor spread all around the world. She won many awards, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. After her death in 1997, the process for her sainthood was quickly begun and she was beatified in 2003.
FR. BRIAN KOLODIEJCHUK, M.C., Ph.D., was born in Winnipeg, Canada. He met Mother Teresa in 1977 and was associated with her until her death in 1997. He joined the Missionaries of Charity Fathers at the time of their foundation in 1984. Fr. Brian is postulator of the Cause of Beatification and Canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and director of the Mother Teresa Center.

I won't comment on those issues. However, what is clear in this new collection of her previously private writings is that she was a mystic in a centuries-long tradition of men and women with spiritual motivations made of tempered steel. In some ways, she reminds us of Dorothy Day, whose diaries also reveal dark nights of the soul -- and a restless hunger in her search for God's presence.
This book was released by people working toward her canonization as a saint in the Catholic church, so they understand that it is important to let us glimpse Teresa's interior struggles.
If you're intrigued by this woman, you need to read this book to understand more about the fullness of her faith.

A wonderful book! What an insight into her spiritual walk: darkness, Light, patience, endurance, doubt, faith, love, unceasing prayer, thirst, mountaintops, valleys, terrible but necessary inner struggles in the Refiner's fire. It's all there. The love of Jesus radiated from her bringing tears of immense joy to those around her who walked in God's grace, full of the Spirit. As I wept those tears of joy, there were other's who were unaffected. It reminded me of Jesus preaching to the people-even in His presence, some got it and some didn't. Reading this book helped my understanding of what it takes to get There.
