Mother Teresa tells the inspiring story of the most revered and loved woman of our times. Born in Albania in 1910, Mother Teresa joined the Missionary Sisters of Loreto and was sent to India to teach in a high school. In Calcutta she was the staggering poverty, disease and misery of the poor often left to die in the streets. Mother Teresa felt called by God to live among these outcasts, to nurse and care for them and enable them to die in dignity.
Elaine Murray Stone tells the incredible story of how God blessed the Missionaries of Charity, which Mother Teresa founded, and how their work spread around the world. Young and old will find this moving account of these heroic women living the Gospel a source of deeper faith, hope and Christian commitment.
Elaine Murray Stone is the award-winning author of sixteen books for adults and children, including Maximilian Kolbe: Saint of Auschwits, published by Paulist Press. A native New Yorker, Dt. Stone now lives and works in Florida.
