Mother Teresa and Me Ten Years of Friendship. In these pages Donna-Marie Shares her personal encounter and friendship with a humble woman who, by God's grace, transformed countless hearts all over the world.
"My hope is that this testimony will speak to your heart. I believe the blessings bestowed upon me through the holiness of Mother Teresa must be shared with those who did not have the good fortune to know her personally."
"While this book focuses on the life and spirit of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, it also speaks of other saints in our midst- inspiring people I have met along the way throughout my spiritual journey. Which raises a few questions. Who is likely to become a saint? Who would be an unlikely sainthood? Does a saint perform his or her duties perfectly, a polished halo hovering overhead? Or can saints be ordinary pilgrims like you and me, following the will of God as we Journey toward heaven? The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us the "The Church is a 'Communion of saints.'''
Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle will never forget the first time she laid eyes on Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Hunched, frail, shorter than one of Donna's own children, the aging servant of the poorest of the poor cut an unassuming figure awaiting the start of Mass with her Missionary of Charity Sisters. They would speak briefly after the liturgy- Mother Teresa wanted to meet the mother of such reverent and grace-filled children- and then spend the next ten years intermittently sharing hopes, dreams, and prayers through the mail and in face-to-face conversation.
