I, like many others I'm sure, feel that Mother Teresa was a great person. This book is full of quotes from her. It is awe-inspiring to me that she did such great things and was as humble about what she was doing as she was.

While reading these quotes I was struck by how simple the things she said truly were, yet in their simplicity lies their magnitude. She wasn't helping the poor because it made her a better person, she was helping the poor because it was what she was needed to do to strengthen her relationship with Jesus. Many times she mentions that she helps the poor because the poor are Jesus, and by helping them she is helping Jesus.

Reading these quotes from her was quite touching. I hope that by listening to the message that she was conveying that I can become a better person.

Mother Theresa, I'd heard so much and knew so little. This is but one of the five or so books I've read about her. The book is excellent by itself, but when I visited Our Lady of Angels Bookstore, I saw a book of closeups of her life. Her feet were gnarled, beaten, and terribly bruised in appearance. They seemed to cry of angst and now we learn that she thought she was empty and useless. "G-d embrace her and heal her feet as well as her soul."

This book is beyond a simple book. It is faith & love in the holders palm. The reviews for this book are only high praise. Mire words to say how truly beautiful Mother Teresa's words are..well they are hard to express. It would be a mistake to look for literary gems in an anthology of her thoughts. Pure Love... simple as that.
