Apr 25, Marci rated it really liked it. This is a book I randomly bought off a clearance shelf while in college and I just got around to reading it thanks to my book club. It is set up as a series of quotes and stories from Mother Teresa divided by topic Prayer, Love, Giving, etc which makes it easy to find just what you may be looking for. At the end of the book is an interview with her and then a time line of her life, both of which I found very interesting.

I really enjoyed looking through her thoughts and learned a lot about her This is a book I randomly bought off a clearance shelf while in college and I just got around to reading it thanks to my book club. I really enjoyed looking through her thoughts and learned a lot about her from our book club discussion we all read different books and information on her. Here are a few of my favorite quotes I do not want you to give to me from your abundance.
I never allow people to have fund-raisers for me. I don't want that. I want you to give of yourself. The love you put into the giving is the most important thing. However, if such a person puts her money at the service of others, then she is rich, very rich. Kindness has converted more people than zeal, science, or eloquence. Holiness grows so fast where there is kindness.
The world is lost for want of sweetness and kindness. Do not forget we need each other. When I pick up some starving person off the street and offer him a bowl of rice or a piece of bread, I can satisfy his hunger. But a person that has been beaten or feels unwanted or unloved or fearful or rejected by society experiences a kind of poverty that is much more painful and deep. The cure is much more difficult to find.
Life is to love and to be loved. That is why we all have to take a strong stand so that no child, boy or girl, will be rejected or unloved. Every child is a sign of God's love, that has to be extended over all the earth. Nov 23, Christopher Lewis Kozoriz rated it it was amazing Shelves: autobiographies , spiritual-visions. Truly Mother Teresa was a gift to the wo "Jesus gives me the opportunity to feed Him by feeding those who are hungry, to clothe Him by clothing those who are naked, to heal Him by caring for those who are sick, and to offer Him shelter by housing those who are homeless and unwanted.
Truly Mother Teresa was a gift to the world and her work was self-sacrificing as she served "the poorest of the poor. She quotes Jesus often and His words, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
A great woman of God worth time to study and imitate. Jan 10, James Briggs rated it really liked it. The first few chapters are absolutely incredible! Mother Teresa puts such on strong emphasis on charity and love. In brief summary. Love someone, and you love God. Serve someone and you serve God. Care for someone, have compassion for someone, etc and you've done it until Christ. About half way through the book started to feel and read a little more dry. She also shared some things that I strongly disagree with.
Money is evil, and to be poor is good. While I would agree that money and wealth can be made, can increase someone's pride and so forth, but money itself and to have a lot of it isn't at all bad if used properly. So seeking wealth is in my opinion not bad. Anyway, that was my biggest problem with the book. The other part I struggled through was all the Catholic doctrine that she talks about. I would love to learn and understand more I think studying other religions would be remarkable but currently it just seemed over my head.
The final two chapters open up to a conversation or interview with Mother Teresa as well as a short biography of sorts about her. Did really enjoy those parts, and it is worth reading those chapters if nothing else just to more fully understand the incredible Saint and person she was. I would recommend this book to just about everyone. Despite it being a bit dry for me.
Service to others really is one of the most important things we can do in this life. And Mother Teresa makes that very clear in her book. I hope to become more like her, and once I do, once my prayers become more meaningful, and I humble myself more Nov 05, Lon rated it really liked it.
