Product Description

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 have been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world. Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights or her struggles. This collection of her writings 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.

Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

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.

David Crumm and ReadTheSpirit.com

Popular culture has grabbed hold of this mystic with such a vengeance that millions see Mother Teresa as a saint -- but many critics bristle at the public adulation and question some of the choices she made in serving the poor and spending her order's money.
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.

Editorial Reviews

“If I ever become a Saint—I will surely be one of “darkness.” I will continually be absent from Heaven—to lit the light of those in darkness on earth .”
—Mother Teresa of Calcutta

    This review was written for Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light.
    I wanted this book for the words of Mother Teresa herself, and Come Be My Light is filled with excerpts of her letters and writings.

    There is so much here to recommend this volume.

    She was a woman who willed one thing: God and the poor, a Yes to Jesus.

    She said: "I long to light the light of love in the heart of every creature of God."

    Her life was characterized by her desire to "Smile for Jesus."

    People the world over will tell you that she showed them a glimpse of Christ's love here on earth, over and over.

    This same soul endured times of such darkness and dryness, that she felt like she was experiencing hell: separation from God Himself.

    Somehow, even this darkness that wrenched her soul did not stop her.

    Her sweetness and sense of humor come through when she wrote to a spiritual advisor, telling him that she followed Jesus like a little dog after his Master, asking him to pray that she be a cheerful little dog.

    She was even able to minister to her sisters through the emptiness, writing: "It often happens that those who spend their time giving light to others, remain in darkness themselves."

    And: "I have given Him all, even my sins, and He has espoused me to Himself in tenderness and love."

    So we can read this book and find the pearls of wisdom that she left us, and hopefully we can begin to wear them ourselves.

    We can be reminded why the live of faith is one of beauty and mystery, a luminous, gentle light in a storm-clouded world.

    And most of all we can be amazed at the very Real, very Alive Christ who worked through Mother Teresa in all moments.

    As she wrote:

    "Remember the five fingers- You-did-it-to-Me.

    Remember- love begins at home- our community- our family.

    Remember- works of love are works of peace."

    Thank you Blogging for Books for my review copy!

    This review was written for Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light.
    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.
