Join us in Celebrating Mother Teresa's Life


You may know her only as a single-minded advocate for the poor, an image reinforced by countless sweet photos of her smiling at babies.

But do you know of her secret visions, or of her dark nights and excruciating sufferings? Did you know she went toe-to-toe with Calcutta's Goddess of Death, and won?

This Sunday, September 4th, Mother Teresa will be declared a saint by Pope Francis. Celebrate her life and this special event with an intimate look into the life of this great saint.

Mother Teresa's strength has been matched by few souls in history. And now you can discover the private episodes that formed this modern saint.

If you are looking for a sentimental book about Mother Teresa, then this is not it. Instead, you'll find here an unflinching look at the first saint of our global village.

Los Angeles's Archbishop Jose Gomez said, "This book reminds us — as Mother Teresa always did — that God calls all of us to holiness." "This book," said Scott Hahn, "belongs in the hands of everyone who loves this most beloved of modern women."  Best-selling author Matthew Kelly said, "For the first time we are given significant insight into the inner-struggles that produced the outer-triumph of this icon of modern holiness."

Part biography and part spiritual reading, these pages bring to light little-known details of Mother Teresa's life that will help you conquer the sin and darkness in what she called the slums of your heart. You'll learn how Mother Teresa approached reading Scripture, what enabled her to persevere through agonizing nights, and the remarkable — some would say mystical — events that led her to start the Missionaries of Charity.

In considering her private visions and her secret sufferings, author David Scott has discovered scores of early episodes and chance encounters that point to later, larger meanings. These patterns, he suggests, show that Mother Teresa's life was choreographed from above, as if a divine script had been written for her from before her birth. "This is the first true interpretation of Mother Teresa's life," said veteran author Mike Aquilina. "It is a vivid and delightfully readable biography for those who wish to imitate her in some way." Learn to be an everyday missionary of Christ's love. We are all called to holiness, and the saints are sent to us as real-life examples of God's love.

Join Archbishop Gomez, Scott Hahn, and Matthew Kelly in letting Mother Teresa guide you in finding holiness in a world marked by the shadow of death and growing indifference to God.

Mother Teresa was voted the most admired person of the 20th century, and is loved the world over. Still, she was not without her critics. This book closely examines their accusations.

What virtually all of her critics have in common is an unabiding disdain for Catholicism—most were, or are, militant atheists. Their strong embrace of socialism is another conspicuous characteristic. What they abhor about Mother Teresa is her strong faith and her altruism.

Mother Teresa's conviction that life begins in the womb, and that abortion is a violent act, does not sit well with her atheist critics. They are also contemptuous of her private, voluntary efforts to tend to the needs of the poor: socialists see such behavior as a deterrent to state programs, the only ones they find acceptable.

No one was more harsh in his criticism of Mother Teresa than Christopher Hitchens. He locked horns many times with Bill Donohue, and some of those exchanges are recounted in this volume. Neither man was shy about defending his position, and both let loose on each other.

This book, unlike the work of Mother Teresa's critics, offers plenty of evidence; the sources are amply noted. Those who have been curious about the charges made by her detractors will find this book an invaluable resource. It unmasks her critics and puts to rest the cruel myths they promoted about her.
