Mother Teresa's canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis's Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting, since she is seen by millions of people both inside and outside the Church as an icon of God's mercy to those in need. Compiled and edited by the postulator of Mother Teresa's cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents her deep and simple words, as well as her efficient and life-changing example in ministering to others with love and compassion. She discusses such topics as: the need for us to visit the sick and the imprisoned; the importance of honoring the dead and informing the ignorant; the necessity to bear our burdens patiently and forgive willingly; the urgency to feed the poor and pray for all; and the greatness of creating a "civilization of love" through personal service to others. Featuring never-before-published testimonies by people close to Mother Teresa, as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, this book is a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant, and very necessary in the twenty-first century.--Adapted from dust jacket.
A collection of unpublished material from the remarkable woman of faith offers her wisdom on showing compassion in daily life and includes prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice.
