Mother Teresa and Me

Today sees the release of Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle's memoir of her friendship with Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. I have had the privilege of reading and endorsing a truly unique and uplifting book. Here is my comment:
Donna-Marie has composed a loving distillation of Blessed Teresa’s thought based upon a decade of correspondence and visits with the saint of the ghettos. It is A Tale of Two Mothers, of how a chance meeting of the small, dynamic Albanian nun with a young American housewife became a conduit of grace for many. One comes away convinced that the greatest power under heaven is not wealth or political influence but the loving spirit of a mother, for spiritual motherhood is especially efficacious in bringing a healing touch into the many and intangible Calcuttas of the modern world.
A full review of the book as well as an interview with the author will soon follow.
