In A Simple Path, Saint Teresa, senior members of the Missionaries of Charity and volunteers at their homes around the world offer their advice and long experience of how we can practise a fuller love for each other, help those less fortunate than ourselves and find peace in doing so. They discuss such fundamental issues as happiness, fear, compassion, the family and death - all themes of direct relevance to those seeking the deeper meaning of life today. This inspiring work is a unique spiritual guide, for Catholics and non-Catholics alike: full of wisdom and hope, from the one person who gave the greatest example of love in action in our time.
Born in 1910 in Albania, Mother Teresa started her own order, the Missionaries of Charity, in 1950 in Calcutta. During her lifetime she won many awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, and founded hundreds of homes throughout the world. She died in 1999 and will be canonised in September 2016
