It is not how much we do
but how much love
we put in the doing
that makes our offering
something beautiful for God.
- MOTHER TERESA
Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910, Mother Teresa was called to a religious life at a young age. She took the name "Teresa" after Saint Teresa of Lisieux, the patroness of missionaries, and dedicated her entire life to helping the poorest of the poor in India and, later, throughout the world. She came to be known as Mother Teresa and oversaw thousands of nuns as they ministered to the poor, the starving, and the dying.
This informative and eloquent biography highlights the key moments in the life of the determined nun and the ongoing quest to have her canonized. In clear, readable prose, Demi conveys Mother Teresa's innate goodness and devotion while recounting the story of her inspiring accomplishments on behalf of the "poorest of the poor."
Every element of this lovely book reflects Mother Teresa's simple message of service. This is a glorious biography of one of the most beloved people of our time Ã¢â‚¬â€� a woman whose actions and words will inspire us all.
This is the first in a planned series of biographies from National Braille Press. We hope to offer biographies of interesting and inspiring people who will speak to readers of all ages, races and creeds.
