About Where There Is Love, There Is God

"What you are doing I cannot do, what I’m doing you cannot do, but together we are doing something beautiful for God, and this is the greatness of God’s love for us.” —Mother Teresa, from Where There Is Love, There Is God
 
In this book, Mother Teresa’s relationship with God and her commitment to those she served—the poorest of the poor—is powerfully explored in her own words. Taken largely from her private lessons to her sisters, published here for the first time, Where There Is Love, There Is God unveils her extraordinary faith in, and surrender to, God’s will.

Love
is perhaps the word that best summarizes Mother Teresa’s life and message. She sought to be an extension of God’s heart and hands in today’s world. She was called to be a missionary of charity, a carrier of God’s love to each person she met, especially those most in need. Yet she did not think that this was a vocation uniquely hers; she believed each person is in some way called to be a carrier of God’s love. Through the practical and timely advice she offers, Mother Teresa sets us on the path to closer union with God and greater love for our brothers and sisters.

About Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa (1910–1997) was born in Skopje (present-day Macedonia) and joined the Sisters of Loreto in Dublin in 1928. She left the Loreto order in 1948 to begin the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta. Her service to the poorest of the poor became her life’s work. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and was beatified in 2003. Editor of Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, MC, PhD, was associated with Mother Teresa for twenty years and is now director of the Mother Teresa Center, which has offices in California, Mexico, India, and Italy.

I remember being in 5th grade when she died. The same year Princess Diana died. We had our kids' issue of Time magazine and both women graced the cover. As a young girl, the pictures of the beautiful Princess fascinated me... Yet even then, I remember the indescribable, intriguing beauty of the other woman. Mother Teresa. That was fifteen years ago, but she continues to inspire me the more I learn about her life, her heart, and...

This book, which I received via the Blogging for Books program, has been on my dresser waiting to be read since before Christmas. In case you haven't noticed, I've been in kind of a reading/blogging funk. Tonight I picked it up and thought I'd start reading a biography of Mother Teresa. I soon found that it wasn't a biography but rather a collection of Mother Teresa's sayings and teachings. Generally when I write a DNF review, I'm...

Where There Is Love, There Is God incorporates the essentials of faith in action, particularly to those serving the poor, sick, orphaned or dying.

It is likely if you've read several other books by and/or about Mother Teresa, you will recognize many of the stories and quotes. That doesn't make them any less amazing, of course,...
