Our next book is Mother Teresa: Come be my Light: The Private Writings of the “Saint of Calcutta”. Mother Teresa was “an icon of compassion to people of all religions: her extraordinary contributions to the care of the sick, the dying and the thousands of others nobody else was prepared to look after have 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 advisers over decades … 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 the fire of charity and whose heart was tested and purified by an intense trial of faith, a true dark night of the soul.” (description from the book jacket)
