The Way of Love - Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Love personified and an oasis to the poorest of the poor in the desert sands of neglect and hatred, the nun in the blue-bordered white saree truly transcends all things earthly.  Mother Teresa - the Albanian girl who left her home in Skopje in Yugoslavia at eighteen, travelled to Calcutta by sea, and selflessly dedicated her life to serve humanity in order to serve her Lord. It’s been nineteen years since she went to Him, but her immortal spirit keeps kindling the light of Love in the hearts of millions around the world.

A surfeit of contents has been interwoven to give The Way of Love a shape. To read through the pages will mean a journey through her life in entirety – from Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu to being the Saint Teresa of Calcutta. Besides a real-time anecdote of the author’s visit to various Missionaries of Charity centres, and tributes by eminent personalities who worked with Mother Teresa, the book is suitably illustrated with photographs and paintings.

Mother’s messages of love and peace have healed many lives around the world, and will do so for eternity as she had said –

Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
