Title:Mother Teresa's Work of Grace
Author:Courtney Tower
Publication:Reader's Digest

Abstract:It all began more than 40 years ago when a young nun of Slavic descent received a call to leave her convent in Calcutta and work among the poorest of the poor. Today Mother Teresa's Missionaries of charity,a small army of sisters,brothers,priests and volunteers,bring love and caring to hundreds of thousands of the sick,hungry and homeless in 71 countries around the world. Who is Mother Teresa, and why does her Order continue to flourish while other missionary groups decline in number? To find out,Reader's Digest roving editor Courtney Tower spent seven Weeks following Mother Teresa and visiting her leper colonies,AIDS facilities,schools,free-food kitchens and homes for the dying and destitute. In this moving special report,he tells how she has built her life around the belief that in serving the poorest we directly serve God.
