"Spending time with Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity enriched my life, and I want to share Mother's warm spirit, wisdom and unconditional love. Mother said, 'If God calls you into the street, go into the street with a smile, but don't go unless he calls you. If he calls you into a palace, go there with a smile.'"--From the Introduction The life of Mother Teresa and the work of her Missionaries of Charity have inspired millions.
