New book reveals 'true message' of Mother Teresa
Facebook Twitter Google+ Pinterest Addthis

.- A new book on Blessed Mother Teresa is the first to examine the meaning of her life in light of her personal letters that were uncovered after her death. Publishers say that "A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa" by David Scott not only expels doubts about her worthiness as a saint, but also explains her relevance in this period of history.

Scott, an associate of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and contributing editor of Godspy.com, considers the significance of her early life, including the murder of her activist father, her separation from her mother and her quiet years as a teaching nun.

He details her recently revealed mystical visions and the events that led to Mother Teresa's difficult decision to work with the poor and the dying. He also quotes from her dark years, when the visitations ceased.

Citing examples of Mother Teresa's ministry, Scott relays her profound messages on the dignity of every person, the natural condition of human holiness, the transcendent nature of the Eucharist, the importance of love in the home, and the strength of a smile.

Scott is former editor of Our Sunday Visitor. His other books include The Catholic Passion: Rediscovering the Power and Beauty of the Faith.

"A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa" is available at Loyola Press for $18.95.”
