Abstract:

A compelling story of one priest's memories of the icon of compassion powerfully illuminates the letters of Mother Teresa, uncovering why she had feelings of being a "saint of darkness."

"The world was shocked when the letters of Mother Teresa were published last year for the first time. The media focused attention at once on the unexpected phenomenon of darkness in the life of the saint, the astonishing revelation that, for decades, Mother Teresa had struggled mightily with belief in God. To some, this seemed to lend support to the arguments of the 'new atheists.' But what we are offered in this beautiful book is, at last, a serious grappling with the deeper meaning of her darkness, a work of sharp and unusual insight, written by someone who knew her. In this intimate look at her 'private writings,' Paul Murray illumines the meaning of a life which is only now beginning to be understood"--p. [2] of jacket.
