Read full description of the books:
Introduction to Mother Teresa of Calcutta offers history of her birth as Agnes Boyaxhui, 1910, Skipje, Yugosalvia. 1928 found her joining the Loretto nuns in Ireland and sent to India within the year. Her role as high school teacher continues for twenty years until she hears the call of God to serve among "the poorest of the poor." She responds by seeking release from the Loretto sisters, leaving the convent under obedience to the Archbishop of Calcutta, she begins a school in the slums and her new life as a religious among the poor. Later, she founds the Missionaries of Charity, now in multiple countries with thousands of members. 1979 saw Mother Teresa awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Depictions of India are portrayed in her descriptions of work and service in her home base of Calcutta. The enormity of size and scope of the city is envisioned as she describes attending to those living in gutters and drains, lepers and dying. All realities of life, suffering and death are addressed as she encountered and helped the least of the least, as she was able.
Interviews conducted by Michael Nabicht and Gaynell Cronin who spent several weeks with Mother Teresa while making the film, WORK OF LOVE resulted in Frank J Cunningham's compilation and edited text.
Beautifully illustrated thoughts and prayers of Mother Teresa represented in black and whites by Rev Patrick Delahanty. Themes foundational to her faith and work include prayer, family, suffering, serving and the reason for all found in Jesus.

Read information about the authorBlessed Teresa of Calcutta, or Mother Teresa, born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta), India in 1950. For over forty years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.
By the 1970s she had become internationally famed as a humanitarian and advocate for the poor and helpless, due in part to a documentary, and book, Something Beautiful for God by Malcolm Muggeridge. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, in 1980 for her humanitarian work. Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity continued to expand, and at the time of her death it was operating 610 missions in 123 countries, including hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis, soup kitchens, children's and family counseling programs, orphanages, and schools.
Following her death she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
