Cardiologist Paul Wright had it all--wealth, prestige, a fulfilling career, a loving family. But despite his success, he felt empty, depressed, and adrift. He longed to know what purpose God had for him. Seeking direction, Wright sought out Mother Teresa, the person he considered the expert on living the Christian life. Wright's life was forever changed when Mother Teresa shared her message--that his purpose in life, indeed the purpose of each of us, is to serve others with compassion. Wright tells us this story of transformation, of his dramatic shift in values and lifestyle, even in the way he practiced medicine. Drawing an analogy from medicine, Wright says that Mother Teresa gave him her prescription and in following it he found inner peace and happiness in a life of service and compassion.
Among the hundreds of fine biographies, pictorial essays and meditation-based books about Mother Teresa of Calcutta, this book is refreshingly unique. A cardiologist, Wright tells the story of his life-changing, five-year friendship with this saint-in-the making. (Catholic)
