- A Call to Mercy: Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve
- The simple, stunning wisdom of Mother Teresa
- Never-before-published material
- A book you will read over and over
Published to coincide with Pope Francis’s Year of Mercy and the Vatican’s canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book contains unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith.
Mother Teresa's influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, and here is a keepsake work that offers profound yet accessible wisdom on how we can show mercy and compassion in our day-to-day lives.
For millions of people from all walks of life, Mother Teresa’s canonization is providentially taking place during Pope Francis’s Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. This is entirely fitting since she is seen both inside and outside of the Church as an icon of God’s mercy to those in need.
Compiled and edited by Brian Kolodiejckuk, M.C., the postulator of Mother Teresa’s cause for sainthood, A Call to Mercy presents accessible wisdom on how we can show compassion in our everyday lives. In her own words, Mother Teresa 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 purpose to feed the poor and pray for all
- the greatness of creating a “civilization of love” through personal service to others
Featuring never-before-published testimonials by people close to Mother Teresa as well as prayers and suggestions for putting these ideas into practice, A Call to Mercy is a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant, and necessary in the 21st century.
