More About A Call to Mercy by Mother Teresa; Brian Kolodiejchuk
 
 
 
Overview
Published to coincide with Pope Francis's Year of Mercy and the Vatican's canonization of Mother Teresa, this new book of unpublished material by a humble yet remarkable woman of faith whose influence is felt as deeply today as it was when she was alive, offers Mother Teresa s profound yet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 deep yet 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 not only a lovely keepsake, but a living testament to the teachings of a saint whose ideas are important, relevant and very necessary in the 21st century."

This collection of previously unpublished writings by the late Mother Theresa (1910–1997) offers welcome spiritual nourishment from the Nobel Peace Prize winner and beloved contemporary saint-to-be. Chapters cover 14 corporal and spiritual works of mercy performed by Mother Theresa and her order, the Missionaries of Charity. Excerpts from Mother Theresa's letters, speeches, and interviews provide insight into her extraordinary compassion and simple wisdom: "Be kind to each other—I prefer you make mistakes in kindness than that you work miracles in unkindness." In simple language, anonymous testimonials from witnesses and recipients of her generosity and love over the decades convey examples of her seemingly limitless compassion for abandoned children, homeless men and women, prisoners, refugees, and all people impoverished in body and spirit. Each chapter closes with a brief reflection and prayer that Mother Theresa used in her devotionals. The book's release date is timed to coincide with Pope Francis's "Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy" and the Vatican's canonization of Mother Theresa to sainthood in September 2016. These reflections, stories, and testimonials will challenge and inspire readers to bear witness to a venerable spiritual legacy. (Aug.)
