An inspiring quick read and overview of all St Mother Teresa taught us in her selfless service to our world Thoroughly explained how we can become closer to Jesus and God through MT s actions and words I was expecting a littleinformation on her dark nights, but did appreciate the explanation of MT s spiritual viewpoints of our world and spiritual connections to suffering.

Really, I want to give this 2 1 2 stars.it s OK, but it s a bit contradictory in places to other Mother Teresa books I ve read, especially a book of interviews she gave an Italian journalist In some places I felt Scott was reaching a bit in trying to make is thesis work But it s a worthwhile addition to the Mother Teresa canon. My second time reading this in 2016 Might need to read this annually The last chapter gives me such perspective, courage and even a bit of faith. This book was okay I was really hoping forThe description was how it would help you conquer the slums of your heart and personally I didn t feel it really covered this. The Love that Made Mother Teresa begins by speaking of Mother Teresa s beatification and the profound impact she had on each of the four popes she met The next chapters then discuss what makes a saint, how she became a saint the miracles she performed , and how some saints are different, i.e., saints with a global message, not just a local saint The next section of the book focuses on her childhood, formative years, her entry into the convent, and it even compared her to St Therese of Lisieu The Love that Made Mother Teresa begins by speaking of Mother Teresa s beatification and the profound impact she had on each of the four popes she met The next chapters then discuss what makes a saint, how she became a saint the miracles she performed , and how some saints are different, i.e., saints with a global message, not just a local saint The next section of the book focuses on her childhood, formative years, her entry into the convent, and it even compared her to St Therese of Lisieux The section after this deals primarily with the Mother Teresa we all knew and loved We see her forming the Missionary Sisters of Charity and helping the poor What was most interesting to me was the chapter that showed a start contrast between the war that was going on globally and Mother Teresa helping those with peace and love The closing section deals with the darkness that Mother Teresa experienced at the end of her life This is a very personal and hard to read section, but it is a truth worth reading.This book is a mixture of biography and spiritual guidance It not only tells of her life on earth, but also tells about the lasting impact she left on the lives of everyone she touched What s evenimpressive is the impact she had on people like me, who never had a chance to meet her, but were inspired by her life and work from afar This is a book that all who love Mother Teresa should read It is definitely worth picking up and reading before she becomes a saint on September 4th Rev Ed Of A Revolution Of Love The Meaning Of Mother Teresa C
