Read full description of the books:
This beautiful gift book of Mother Teresa's writings is a powerful portrait of one of the most beloved women of all time, told in her own words, filled with a fascinating blend of daily life experiences, prayers, and spiritual wisdom. Readers will turn these pages and follow Mother Teresa into the desperate corners of India, Australia, and New York, in her extraordinary and selfless work with the 'poorest of the poor.' They can listen as she offers pearls of spiritual wisdom as relevant today as they were when she first began her ministry 65 years ago. They will contemplate an exemplary life that was driven by the compelling desire to help those less fortunate than herself, often at great personal sacrifice. This small, elegant gift book is divided into three sections: Thoughts, Stories, and Prayers. Throughout these sections, Mother Teresa speaks on compassion, silence, joy, contemplation, generosity, sacrifice, and the spiritual strength that guided this diminutive heroine along the steep and rocky paths she chose to pursue. In the Heart of the World bears indisputable testimony to the influence of someone completely dedicated to a life of love and service.

Read information about the authorBlessed Teresa of Calcutta, or Mother Teresa, born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta), India in 1950. For over forty years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.
By the 1970s she had become internationally famed as a humanitarian and advocate for the poor and helpless, due in part to a documentary, and book, Something Beautiful for God by Malcolm Muggeridge. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, in 1980 for her humanitarian work. Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity continued to expand, and at the time of her death it was operating 610 missions in 123 countries, including hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis, soup kitchens, children's and family counseling programs, orphanages, and schools.
Following her death she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
