A touching tribute to Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa was one of the most admired women of the 20th century, and her memory continues to inspire charitable work around the world. Author Jim Towey had been a Congressional staffer and lawyer in the 1980s until a brief meeting with Mother Teresa illuminated the emptiness of his life. He began volunteering at one of her soup kitchens and later gave up his job to become a full-time volunteer for Mother Teresa.
To Love and Be Loved is Towey's firsthand account of Mother Teresa’s last years, and the first book ever to detail her dealings with worldly matters. We see her gracefully navigate the challenges of leadership, celebrity, and aging. Above all, we see her endless devotion to God and to the poorest of His children.
“Though Towey’s personal, transformative relationship with Mother Teresa forms the central theme, he also offers a fascinating inside look into Mother Teresa’s daily life…Inspiring and joyful.” —Kirkus Review
