Advent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta – Daily Meditations
In her lifetime, Mother Teresa was one of the world's most admired women -- and now the Church has declared her a saint! To celebrate her canonization, this book offers short daily reflections for the season of Advent (the four weeks leading up to Christmas).
Short daily Scripture readings and quotes and stories from the life of Mother Teresa (now Saint Teresa of Calcutta) are combined with thoughtful commentary, to inspire and encourage readers to take a few quiet moments each day during this busy holiday season. Each day concludes with a thought to ponder and brief prayer. A companion book will be published in January 2017: Lent with Saint Teresa of Calcutta.
All profits for each book go to support the work of the Franciscans and Franciscan Media, a non-profit Catholic ministry, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
