This historic work reveals the inner spiritual life of one of the most beloved and important religious figures in history.
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 her writing and reflections, almost all of which have never been made public before, sheds light on Mother Teresa's interior life in a way that reveals the depth and intensity of her holiness for the first time.
Compiled and presented by Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C., who knew Mother Teresa for twenty years and is the postulator for her cause for sainthood and director of the Mother Teresa Center, MOTHER TERESA brings together letters she wrote to her spiritual advisors over decades. A moving chronicle of her spiritual journey—including moments, indeed years, of utter desolation—these letters reveal the secrets she shared only with her closest confidants. 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.
Published to coincide with the tenth anniversary of her death, MOTHER TERESA is an intimate portrait of a woman whose life and work continue to be admired by millions of people.
德兰修女的好友、“仁爱之家”成员科洛杰奇克神父向梵蒂冈提出封圣德兰修女的请求，其中一个程序是将德兰修女生前的书信编撰成书，于是出版了这本名为《Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light》（德兰修女∶来当我的光）。本书结集德兰修女生前40年来撰写的信件，揭示原来虔诚如德兰修女也经历了近50年的信心危机，她曾质疑天主和天堂是否存在，一度停止祈祷，更坦言讨厌自己表里不一，至死仍未能释怀。
