Encountering Mother Teresa

Linda Schaefer began her career as a journalist for CNN in 1985 but found she couldn’t abandon her first love — photography. She met and photographed Mother Teresa for the first time on June 15, 1995, while on freelance assignment for The Georgia Bulletin, the newspaper for the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Less than two months later, Linda found herself in Calcutta, where she had the rare opportunity to document the work of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Linda took thousands of photographs, and through this experience she began to feel that this work might be her calling in life. Linda attended both the beatification and the canonization of Mother Teresa, and she has returned to Calcutta twice in her quest to learn as much as possible about the saint and the work of the Missionaries of Charity. Through these experiences, Linda met and interviewed six of Mother Teresa’s closest friends, confidants, and coworkers in the vineyard of Christ. These interviews became the groundwork for Encountering Mother Teresa.

This fascinating book includes more than 200 rare and never-before-seen photos of Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity. Spanning decades, these photos provide a personal look at Mother Teresa and her enduring legacy.

Linda Schaefer is a photographer and writer by trade but an artist by intuition. Recognized by respected magazines and newspapers, her work has appeared in The New York Times, Catholic Digest, Time, Newsweek, GQ, the Los Angeles Times, and Stern, to name a few.
Schaefer has spoken about her experiences with Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity to audiences throughout the country, including Catholic Charities and multiple interdenominational charitable organizations.
In 2007, Schaefer accepted a faculty position at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma. In 2014, she was offered a position at a woman’s university in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. She completed her contract at Dar Al-Hekma University in January 2019 and has resumed her life in Oklahoma.

Mother Teresa Rosary Bracelet

This piece beams with the natural beauty of Mother Teresa, exquisite and unadorned. In accordance with her pragmatism, we've designed and handmade a rosary bracelet that you can wear- and pray- every day. Chosen for simplicity and subtle detailing: azure hues of earthy blue stones are interwoven with ivory stones creating this rosary bracelet masterpiece. The crucifix is paired with an exclusive Saint Mother Teresa medal, featuring an etching of extraordinary likeness which captures the weathered, tell-tale lines of unconditional love.  
This bracelet beckons prayer; prayer beckons action; action beckons love; love beckons peace. That's the way of Mother Teresa, and this is a rosary reminder that retains her quiet dignity, even as it looks and fits your wrist like fine jewelry. 
*Bead coloring may vary slightly with each piece due to the natural characteristics of the stone material.
