From the Publisher

In the Heart of the World is a powerful portrait of one of the most beloved women of all time, told in her own words through a fascinating blend of daily life experiences, prayers, and spiritual wisdom. Follow Mother Teresa to the streets of Calcutta, Rome, and New York and listen as she offers pearls of spiritual truth as relevant today as when she began her work more than sixty years ago.

With humor, compassion, and lyrical clarity, Mother Teresa illuminates the sacred in the intimate everyday tasks of living. In the Heart of the World bears indisputable testimony to the influence of a soul wholly dedicated — with a heart of love — to a life of service. Through this book, Mother Teresa will inspire you to reach out with love and compassion to others, and to work together for world peace.
