How has one woman accomplished so much? And what are the
guiding principles that have enabled this humble nun to so profoundly effect the
lives of millions?
Now, in her own words, Mother Teresa shares the thoughts
and experiences that have led her to do her extraordinary charitable work. A
candid look at her everyday life--at the very simplicity and self-sacrifice that
give her the strength to move mountains--A Simple Path gives voice to the
remarkable spirit who has dedicated her life to the poorest among us.
Just as important as her beliefs are how they are put
into action in the world, and A Simple Path also tells the story of the founding
of the Missionaries of Charity, their purpose and practice, and the results of
their tireless work. Through faith, surrender, and prayer, the missionaries live
to serve others; they have improved the lives of countless souls and given
dignity to the dying. Their mission has also produced a ripple effect, spreading
human compassion to communities where there is need.
Through these examples,
as well as the uplifting words and guiding prayers of Mother Teresa and those
who work with her, everyone can learn how to walk the simple path that Mother
Teresa has laid out for us, to help create a truly kinder world for the
Path is a unique spiritual guide for Catholics and non-Catholics alike: full
of wisdom and hope from the one person who has given us the
greatest model of love in action in our time
