In her own words, Mother Teresa tells of the simple joy of following Jesus and surrendering fully to him. Her life of radical poverty and wholehearted dedication to the poorest of the poor forms the heart of this inspiring surrender to God and to those most in need. It is part of the genius of Mother Teresa that she finds ways to tailor her spirituality to people from every state and circumstance in life. Men and women, young and old, sick and well, rich and poor, religious and lay, married and single, Catholic and Protestant, are able to join with her, sharing her vision and joy in service to Christ and the poor. Here is rich spiritual fare from Mother Teresa's letters, spiritual retreats, and instructions to her sisters, as well as from the constitution of the Missionaries of Charity. A Servant Book.
