During her lifelong service to the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa became an icon of compassion to people of all religions; her extraordinary contributions to the care of the sick, the dying, and the thousands of others nobody else was prepared to look after have been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world. Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights or her struggles.
This collection of letters she wrote to her spiritual advisors over decades, almost all of which have never before been made public, sheds light on Mother Teresa's interior life in a way that reveals the depth and intensity of her holiness for the first time. She emerges as a classic mystic whose inner life b urned with the faire of charity and whose heart was tested and purified by an intense trial of faith, a true dark night of the soul.
