"What you are doing I cannot do, what Iâ€™m doing you cannot do, but together we are doing something beautiful for God, and this is the greatness of Godâ€™s love for us.â€ â€”Mother Teresa, from Where There Is Love, There Is God
In this book, Mother Teresaâ€™s relationship with God and her commitment to those she servedâ€”the poorest of the poorâ€”is powerfully explored in her own words. Taken largely from her private lessons to her sisters, published here for the first time, Where There Is Love, There Is God unveils her extraordinary faith in, and surrender to, Godâ€™s will.
Love is perhaps the word that best summarizes Mother Teresaâ€™s life and message. She sought to be an extension of Godâ€™s heart and hands in todayâ€™s world. She was called to be a missionary of charity, a carrier of Godâ€™s love to each person she met, especially those most in need. Yet she did not think that this was a vocation uniquely hers; she believed each person is in some way called to be a carrier of Godâ€™s love. Through the practical and timely advice she offers, Mother Teresa sets us on the path to closer union with God and greater love for our brothers and sisters.
