What I liked best about this book in particular of many on Mother Teresa is that this book shows who she is in stories and sayings in her own words.
What I discovered in page after page of No Greater Love is how way far behind Mother Teresa I am in trying to follow Jesus' instructions. Mother Teresa has no baggage at all. Mother Teresa has no attachments. Mother Teresa has her mission and her moment looking for Jesus in every single person. Of course, she's a saint.
Imagine the gift of a little book by a saint, teaching how to love unconditionally, expecting nothing at all, being grateful for everything, genuinely enjoying her work. Imagine creating a huge band of Mother Teresas who serve with the same kind of Christian charity.
How I read this book is a page a day during my morning prayers. That way, her teaching of the day had a chance to really sink in. It is a short book. An avid reader, I could have probably blown through it in one sitting. But, I believe I would not have remember nearly as much, not gotten nearly the amount of her passion, prayer life and precious patience.
Anyone who wants to learn something of love that looks for nothing in return can get satisfied in reading No Greater Love.
