Synopses & Reviews
John Kirvan adds the wisdom of Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997) to the The Thirty Days with a Great Spiritual Teacher series. For Mother Teresa, Jesus was always near at hand, especially for the destitute and dying. The depth of her dedication and spiritual vision captured the imagination of the world and led to her beatification in 2003, only six years after her death. Love Without Measure invites us to encounter the presence of Christ -- in the poor as well as the comfortable, in the stranger and in the friend -- and to respond with a service grounded in love. Over 340,000 copies sold in this series.
"Kirvan, author of 16 other books in the Thirty Days with a Great Spiritual Teacher series, turns his attention to Mother Teresa's determination to put love into action and care for the poor. Each of the 30 days begins with a short quote from the beloved nun, followed by a longer meditation from Kirvan, reflecting on that theme. He suggests that this be read first thing in the morning to set the tone for the day, and that readers take with them his distilled mantra of that day's theme (e.g., 'love serves' or 'it is not enough to talk a good life') and post it where they can refer to it often. Each day ends with a final reflection in the form of a conversational prayer. Kirvan helps readers connect with Mother Teresa's belief that Christ is found in the poor and the stranger, and teaches them how to give until it hurts."
