Abstract:

Mother Teresa's work for--and among--the poor has become the yardstick by which the entire world measures compassion, generosity, and selflessness. Her words and actions have inspired millions of people from every race and religion and country to help the poor and needy, a legacy that is her gift to all mankind for generations to come. From 1950, when she founded the order of Missionaries of Charity, to winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, to her final days, Mother Teresa served the world as a beacon shedding the light of hope, comfort, and peace on all. This book is a testament to the power of her words. Here are the same quotes, stories, and prayers that helped strengthen and inspire the poor, the dying, the suffering, and the doubting who she met during her lifetime, and that will continue to strengthen and inspire all who read them.--From publisher description.
