Mother Teresa's daily life, as described by Msgr. Maasburg, can be put in two powerful words: holy daring. The mysterious language spoken between God and the saints is the firm belief that everything, absolutely everything, is a message of His love. Do I need to say more: tolle, lege. --Alice von Hildebrand, Author, The Privilege of Being a Woman
Msgr. Leo Maasburg gives us such great insight into this very human and very holy saint. Read this book! --Fr. Larry Richards, Author, Be a Man!
With her "ammunition"-Miraculous Medals of the Blessed Virgin Mary she handed out-and determination to change the world one person at a time, Mother Teresa became an icon for charitable work in the latter part of the 20th century. Maasburg, an Austrian priest, came along for the ride as Mother Teresa's confessor and translator. His 50 stories ramble across several continents and through the decades, when this woman truly seemed to perform one miracle after another to get what she wanted and to build the Sisters of Charity into a worldwide organization. The stories of her ministry in the Soviet Union during the 1988 earthquakes in Armenia will be new to readers of the history of this amazing nun. "Mother Teresa was a missionary through and through who saw God's omnipotence and love of Jesus at work in everything and everyone," Maasburg writes. She stood down the popes of the church and even the Sandinista rebel leaders in Nicaragua as she built a religious family that consisted of five congregations and 592 houses. This is a book for readers who want an intimate portrait of a saint in the Catholic Church. --Publishers Weekly

"can't put down" book. I loved the story about how she never said anything bad about anyone no matter what the situation or how she was treated. This came from her home upbringing after her mother would shut the electricity off if a negative word was spoken saying she wasn't going to waste electricity on those who would offer such words. I think we could all learn from this little act of sacrifice.
