MOTHER TERESA COME BE MY LIGHT

Product Description
Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light
The Private Writings of the "Saint of Calcutta"

Come Be My Light is that rare thing, a posthumous autobiography that could cause a wholesale reconsideration of a major public figure – one way or another. It raises questions about God and faith, the engine behind great achievement, and the persistence of love, divine and human. That it does so not in any organized, intentional form but as a hodgepodge of desperate notes not intended for daylight should leave readers only more convinced that it is authentic – and that they are, somewhat shockingly, touching the true inner life of a modern saint." --Time

“If I ever become a Saint– I will surely be one of 'darkness.' I will continually be absent from Heaven– to light the light of those in darkness on earth.” –Mother Teresa

During her lifelong service to the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa became an icon of compassion to people of all religions; her extraordinary contributions to the care of the sick, the dying, and thousands of others nobody else was prepared to look after has been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world. Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights or her struggles. This collection of letters she wrote to her spiritual advisors over decades, almost all of which have never been made public, sheds light on Mother Teresa’s interior life in a way that reveals the depth and intensity of her holiness for the first time. She emerges as a classic mystic whose inner life burned with fire of charity and whose heart was tested and purified by an intense trial of faith, a true dark night of the soul.
