Review:

The authors, who worked closely with Mother Teresa during her lifetime, have drawn together stories and prayers inspired by the missionary, who worked tirelessly on behalf of India's poor with her sisters of charity. Each day of the year is assigned a brief story or blessing: A child goes without sugar so Mother Teresa may have it; a truckload of bread miraculously arrives for starving Indians when the rice has run out. Many of the passages are quotes from Mother Teresa herself, and all of them challenge the reader to live up to her saintly view of humanity and suffering. If the day-by-day approach doesn't fit, there's an easy-to-browse index, organized by theme ("cheerfulness," "humility," "suffering"). Her standards are high, however, and normal sinners may find her words more challenging than uplifting.

From the Back Cover:

In 365 daily entries, Mother Teresa -- beloved crusader for the poor and symbol of charity and compassion -- ruminates on the importance of work and prayer, charity and service, the right to life and, above all, the need to love, unconditionally and absolutely. Drawing on a lifetime of selfless service to the poorest of the poor, she speaks of men and women in the midst of great poverty who have lived and died uncomplainingly; of wealthy businessmen whose indifference has been transformed into compassion and charity; and of her encounters with people and governments around the globe.

For all those who seek to find meaning and fulfillment in life, The Joy in Loving will prove a constant source of guidance, comfort, and peace.
