The Back of the Book: A heart of love, a life of service.
A Life for God: The Mother Teresa Reader is a powerful portrait of one of the most beloved women of all time, a fascinating blend of biographical detail and spiritual wisdom. Follow Mother Teresa from her birthplace in Albania to the swarming streets of Calcutta. Listen as she offers pearls of spiritual truth as relevant today as when she first began her ministry sixty-five years ago. With the turn of each page, you will be drawn into a story of the life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, a life that is best characterised by Mother Teresa herself:
Love has a hem to her garment
That reaches the very dust
It sweeps the stains
From the streets and lanes,
And because it can, it must.
Throughout the book, Mother Teresa will inspire you to offer up your life to God, to work for peace, and to reach out with love ad compassion to others. ‘Do not pursue spectacular deeds,’ she says. ‘What matters is the gift of your self, the degree of love that you put into each one of your actions.’ This book bears undisputable testimony to the invincibility of a soul wholly dedicated to God.
