Abstract:

The glitter of Mother Teresa's celebrity obscures the full splendor of her saintliness, argues [the author] in this ... look at the life of the first truly global saint ... Mother Teresa appeared unflappable in her single-minded advocacy for the poor, but she was actually a complex figure. She found her life's work only after years of false starts and by overcoming great practical difficulties. Her love for the poor was accompanied by a stern critique of the rich and powerful. And she lived much of her life in an anguished dark night of the soul.
