Synopsis: More than four years in the making and published with the permission and cooperation of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, this large format 224 page book offers the most comprehensive photographic documentation of the apostolic work and prayer life of the Missionaries of Charity yet published. Destined to serve as an important historical record, this "illustrated prayer book" vividly portrays the peace and joy that can come when "small things" are done with great love.
The more than 180 fine art quality tri-tone photographs, along with spiritual counsel from Mother Teresa, will provide a lifetime of rich material for prayer and meditation. Also included and published for the first time ever, with Mother Teresa's special permission, is an appendix containing the contents of the Missionaries of Charity daily prayer book as well as a most personal and profound letter on the interior life written by Mother Teresa during Holy Week of 1993 and addressed to her entire order. Though meant originally as an instruction and appeal to those in her order, this "I Thirst" letter is certain to become a source of spiritual light and encouragement, drawing innumerable hearts and souls closer to God.
From Publishers Weekly:
Unlike the people of ancient days who knew of saints only through their legends, icons and reliquaries, we in the 20th century have the ability to know modern saints through more technological forms. Over a four-year period, Collopy documented with photography Mother Teresa, the Missionaries of Charity and those persons throughout the world to whom the missionaries have ministered. The majority of the pages of the book is comprised of photos, many stunning, but also included are commentary by Collopy, quotes, letters and spiritual counsel by Mother Teresa and the daily prayers of the Missionaries of Charity. Anyone whose life has been affected by Mother Teresa's work will enjoy this book.
