Faith In The Darkness A deeply human and moving
portrait of a modern-day icon Mother Teresa
has symbolized human goodness, empathy and
charity for decades and continues to do so
after her death. But how did Agnes Bojaxhiu, a simple girl
from an obscure corner of Eastern Europe,
become such an international and influential figure?
This illustrated biography tells the story of her life,
from being a determined young nun who
went out into the streets of Calcutta to care for the diseased
and the dying, to becoming the voice for the weak
and the poor. Her vision led to the founding of the
Missionaries of Charity, an order with a presence in
over 120 countries today. Despite incessant scrutiny
and criticism of her ideology, methods of care and financing,
she carried on her work which has touched countless
lives around the world and inspired many more.
