As one of the most widely recognized personages of our times and acknowledged to be a saint even while still alive, Mother Teresa became the personification of virtue and mercy. A Call to Mercy is a compilation of her notes and writings, guidance she offered to the nuns, speeches and interviews edited by Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk,the postulator in the cause of her canonization.

I found the format of the book particularly appealing. Each one of its fourteen chapters is devoted to one of the seven Corporal Works of Mercy or one of the seven Spiritual Works of Mercy. The straight-forward wisdom of Mother Teresa’s words reach deep into your soul. A focused reading of this book provides the reader with all the benefits of a spiritual retreat without ever having to leave their home. I highly recommend it.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
