Mother Teresa: A Complete Authorized Biography
Kathryn Spink / Hardcover / Published 1997
For years Mother Teresa has appeared at the top of every list of the world's most influential women, in company with Diana, Princess of Wales, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Different in almost every respect from those famous women, she did share one important quality: she was a star. In Mother Teresa, biographer Kathryn Spink goes beyond her subject's public persona to examine the life of a modern-day saint. In the course of tracing Mother Teresa's life--from her birth in Albania to her years in Ireland and then India with the Loreto Sisters to the founding of her own order, the Missionaries of Charity--Spink explores the ramifications of her subject's life and work on the lives of those she labored for and with.
Mother Teresa's frail appearance belied the steely will and public-relations savvy she brought to the task of loosening potential donor's purse strings and attracting attention to her cause. Was Mother Teresa a kind of spiritual colonialist, as critics have charged, more interested in helping the poor die in a state of grace than in changing the conditions in which they lived? Spink discusses this and other thorny questions with grace and honesty, at the same time emphasizing her subject's admirable achievements.

Suffering Into Joy: What Mother Teresa Teaches About True Joy
Eileen Egan, Kathleen Egan (Editor) / Paperback / Published 1994
Having spent more than 30 years traveling with Mother Teresa, Eileen Egan has had ample opportunity to examine this enigma's philosophy of joy and suffering. Filled with quotes and anecdotes demonstrating Mother Teresa's selfless compassion, this book communicates the paradox of the joy of unselfish love. Mother Teresa teaches her teams of sisters that the agony they relieve is that of Jesus himself, rendering each person sacred. Everyone is Jesus in a distressing disguise, Mother Teresa declares. The sisters must willingly and joyfully accept suffering themselves, for without it, Mother Teresa says, their work would be merely social work, rather than the work of Jesus. Mother Teresa feels joy is often confused with the pursuit of happiness. True joy, asserts Mother Teresa, is a habit that sustains one in times of pain, suffering, and trials that are often associated with unhappiness. Mother Teresa's actions are consistent with her philosophy, as evidenced by her request to forgo her 1979 Nobel Peace Prize's customary banquet and give the resulting $6,000 to the poor. More than a biography of Mother Teresa, this book articulates the core of this woman and reveals why she does what she does. Included are excerpts from the text of Mother Teresa's speech at the 1994 Annual National Prayer Breakfast. Patty O'Connell Copyright©1994, American Library Association. All rights reserved
