Mother Teresa's life sounds like a legend. The Albanian girl who entered an Irish order to go to India as a missionary and became an "Angel of the Poor" for countless people. She was greatly revered by Christians as well as Muslims, Hindus and unbelievers, as she brought the message of Christian love for one's neighbor from the slums of Calcutta to the whole world. Fr. Leo Maasburg was there as her close companion for many years, traveling with her throughout the world and was witness to countless miracles and incredible little-known occurrences. In this personal portrait of the beloved nun, he presents fifty amazing stories about her that most people have never heard, wonderful and delightful stories about miracles, small and great, that he was privileged to experience at Mother Teresa's side. Stories of how, without a penny to her name, she started an orphanage in Spain, and at the same time saved a declining railroad company from ruin, and so many more. They all tell of her limitless trust in God's love, of the way the power of faith can move mountains, and of hope that can never die. These stories reveal a humorous, gifted, wise and arresting woman who has a message of real hope for our time. It's the life story of one of the most important women of the 20th century as it's never been told before.

Should Mother Teresa be Canonized? Ten years after her death, Mother Teresa of Calcutta still holds the moral imagination of the world. Those who question Mother Teresa's sanctity are treated as misguided souls who would better their time imitating her virtues than probing for her peccadilloes. The Christian world will praise Mother Teresa feeding the hungry and giving drink to the thirsty. But what faithful Christian will praise her for saying: I've always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic. A non-Christian would approve of her saying: We never try to convert those who [we] receive to Christianity. A non-Christian would not approve of her doing: We ask those who are about to die in the Home for the Dying if they want a blessing by which their sins will be forgiven and they will see God. There is much to imitate in Mother Teresa's life. But are her critics correct to declare that Mother Teresa was not a saint? Asking this question of Catholics in particular and mankind in general, MOTHER TERESA: THE CASE FOR THE CAUSE contrasts the image of Mother Teresa's words and deeds, her virtues and her vices, against the image of Christianity "believed everywhere (ubique), always (semper), by all (ab omnibus)" and asks all readers to respond to Rome. Everyone has a canon of saints. Should Mother Teresa be in your canon?

While the twentieth century was o en a time of turbulence, sel shness, godlessness, and violence, Mother Teresa of Calcutta was a witness to love. She was a clear reminder of the goodness within human nature and the beauty of being truly open to God. 'Mother' was her religious title, but as she ascended to the world stage, it became her role for the world-to be like a mother to all, no matter their origins. She was accepting and welcoming towards all people, not only towards the good or the like-minded. She continues to serve as an inspiration to people of all walks of life and all creeds. Where the world was blind to poverty and misery, Mother Teresa led the path to love.

At the Home for the Dying in Calcutta, Mother Teresa often cared for the residents as they approached the end. As she was ministering to one illness-ravaged man, a visitor overheard her whisper a few words to him. These few words embody some of Mother Teresa's most wonderful wisdom. This is what she said: ''You say a prayer in your religion, and I will say a prayer as I know it. Together we will say this prayer and it will be something beautiful for God.'' These gentle words of solace and care provide us with a glimpse at a Mother Teresa we've often overlooked: Mother Teresa the universal teacher of prayer. The world has admired the Mother Teresa who devoted her life to caring for the poorest of the poor everywhere. But, her close associates knew that all of Mother Teresa's outer activity of caring and action was the natural consequence of her devotion, the overflow of her deep inner life. They witnessed her reliance upon contemplative practice, and they recognized Mother Teresa not only as a devout Catholic, but also as a great ecumenical teacher of prayer.

"Thoughtfulness is the beginning of great sanctity," observed Mother Teresa, one of the most beloved Catholic women of all time, popularly acclaimed a saint in her own lifetime. This small book of daily reflections for Lent and Holy Week celebrates the humility, charity and devotion of Saint Teresa of Calcutta, canonized on September 4, 2016, and the Missionaries of Charity--including the four sisters martyred in Yemen in March, 2016. The penitential season of Lent is the prelude to Easter, the most resplendent season of the liturgical calendar. On Ash Wednesday, we receive the incinerated ashes of the palms that marked the start of the previous year's Holy Week. In so doing, we are mindful of the perpetual cycle of dying and rising, darkness and light, sin and redemption. On Easter Sunday, we rejoice in the new life to which we have been raised and transformed. With her canonization on September 4, 2016, the writings of Saint Teresa of Calcutta are especially appropriate as we ponder these eternal mysteries--and how we are to live them out in our own lives. Our daily offerings of work and prayer, the intentional giving of ourselves, delights the One who loves us. Each sacrifice, however great or small, presents an opportunity to die to ourselves so that the love of Christ might shine more brightly in us. Our witness--like that of St. Teresa and her sisters--can be a transforming force in the world. And that change begins within. Lent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta offers a short Scripture passage for each day, a brief meditation with a quote or story from the life of this remarkable woman, plus reflection questions and a short prayer to begin or end the day. Read alone or with a small group, this is a helpful resource for reflecting upon the mercy of God--and modeling the generous heart of this saint from Calcutta in our own lives.

Regardless of a person's race or religion, Saint Teresa of Calcutta reached out with unconditional love to everyone God placed in her path. This lavishly illustrated book for children 9 years and up tells the inspiring story of her life and how this one small, simple woman, with deep faith and love, made a huge impact on the world for good.

With Mother Teresa as our model and intercessor, we can reshape the world in which we live by loving our families, friends, and neighbors in the way Jesus has asked.

The heartfelt bond between Saint Therese of Lisieux and Mother Teresa of Calcutta is to be found in their unalterable desire to slake the thirst of chirst, to console him in the face of the indifference of so many people, to quench his thirst for love, to love him in others and letting them be loved by him. They did so by opening up the floodgates of tenderness which had prevented the love in his heart from being welcomed as it ought. The words, "I Thirst," are to be found side by side with the Crucifix in all the houses of the Missionaries of Charity, and the photograph of St. Therese of Lisieux, patroness of the missions, is never far away. Saint Therese and Mother Teresa are like two mirrors mutually reflecting the compassion of Chirst. These two witnesses, making use of the "little way" of confidence and surrender, accessible to all, were chosen by God to reveal to us His thirst for love.
