Where There Is Love, There Is God free pdf Mother Teresa's relationship with God and her commitment to those she served--the poorest of the poor--is here 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 God's will. This book is in some way a sequel to "Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light," in which her own very private spiritual struggles were explained. Sent to alleviate the sufferings of the poor, she assumed their struggles and pain in the depths of her heart. This led to particularly intense anguish which she lived through with heroic courage and fidelity over several decades. As important as this aspect of her life is, that remarkable testimony of her life and her words intensifies the need and desire to know more of her thought. There is much she can teach us as we face our daily struggles or sufferings, which can at times be unusually severe. "Where There is Love, There is God, "though not an exhaustive anthology of Mother Teresa's teaching, nonetheless shows what she believed and taught about important issues that confront all people. Due to her constant interaction with people of diverse backgrounds, no life situation was foreign to her and in this book her role is primarily one of teacher and guide.
"Love" is perhaps the word that best summarizes Mother Teresa's life and message. The title reflects what she proclaimed during her entire life: God is alive, present, and "still loves the world through you and through me." Mother Teresa sought to be an extension of God's heart and hands in the world of today. She was called to be a missionary of charity, a carrier of God's love to each person she met, especially those most in need. Yet she did not think that this was a vocation uniquely hers- each person is in some way called to be a carrier of God'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.
MOTHER TERESA (1910-1997) was born in Skopje (present-day Macedonia), and joined the Sisters of Loreto in Dublin in 1928. She left the Loreto order in 1948 to begin the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta. Her service to the poorest of the poor became her life's work. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and was beatified in 2003. Editor of Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, FATHER BRIAN KOLODIEJCHUK, M.C., Ph.D., was associated with Mother Teresa for twenty years and is now director of the Mother Teresa Center, which has offices in California, Mexico, India, and Italy.

"What you are doing I cannot do, what I'm doing you cannot do, but together we are doing something beautiful for God, and this is the greatness of God's love for us--To give us the opportunity to become holy through the works of love that we do because holiness is not the luxury of the few. It is a very simple duty for you, for me, you in your position, in your work and I and others, each one of us in the work, in the life that we have given our word of honor to God....You must put your love for God in a living action."
-Mother Teresa, From "Where There is Love, There is God"
