A Call to Mercy
Look into seven amazing insights from Mother Teresa, who will become a saint, on kindness, and being merciful to others. God’s mercy is alive and thriving in our world. Precious and desperately needed, it’s something we’re all called to share with each other. But it’s not always easy. Mother Teresa, who will be canonized by Pope Francis Sept. 4, 2016, brought it to countless people around the world. She has also inspired many to follow in the compassionate footsteps of Jesus – our ultimate teacher on how to be merciful. In the much-anticipated book "A Call to Mercy: Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve,” Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, MC – the director of the Mother Teresa Center and the postulator for the cause of canonization for the founder of the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta – has lovingly compiled many previously unpublished writings of Mother Teresa and testimonies of people who experienced the mercy of the woman who will soon become a saint. Through Mother Teresa’s actions and words, the book serves as a guide to anyone who hopes to be merciful. Here are just seven of the myriad of insights the soon to be released book offers to help us in that quest.
