In just a few short weeks (September 4, 2016), we will be celebrating the canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta—a saint who personifies and embodies the humble mercy we are focusing on during this Year of Mercy. This celebration is so timely and fitting as we find ourselves in the midst of a long and frustrating presidential campaign characterized by bluster, braggadocio, and bombast (How’s that for alliteration?!). Mother Teresa—all four feet and eleven inches of her—is a giant compared to anyone presently in the spotlight!
To mark the occasion of Mother Teresa’s canonization and to provide a helpful resource to help people learn more about this great saint, Loyola Press has prepared a beautiful pamphlet—Meet Mother Teresa—which encapsulates the essential wisdom of Mother Teresa. This affordable pamphlet—perfect for catechists—is available in packs of 25 and is ideal for students learning about Mother Teresa or for small-group reading, thanks to the provocative reflection questions designed to spark introspection and discussion. Mother Teresa and her life of service are an inspiration to millions. In Meet Mother Teresa, her words exhort us to pray so that we enlarge our hearts, to love without limits, to forgive as we are forgiven, and to lean on Jesus and offer our suffering to him.
