Mother Teresa shares the thoughts and experiences
that have led her to do her extraordinary charitable
work. A candid look at her everyday life--at the
very simplicity and self-sacrifice that give her
the strength to move mountains--A Simple Path
gives voice to the remarkable spirit who has dedicated
her life to the poorest among us.
as important as her beliefs are how they are put
into action in the world, and A Simple Path also
tells the story of the founding of the Missionaries
of Charity, their purpose and practice, and the
results of their tireless work. Through faith,
surrender, and prayer, the missionaries live to
serve others; they have improved the lives of
countless souls and given dignity to the dying.
Their mission has also produced a ripple effect,
spreading human compassion to communities where
there is need.
Simple Path is a unique spiritual guide for Catholics
and non-Catholics alike: full of wisdom and hope
from the one person who has given us the greatest
model of love in action in our time.
