Mother Teresa’s Secret Fire: The Encounter That Changed Her Life, and How It Can Transform Your Own by Joseph Langford

Mother Teresa's Secret Fire

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of Mother Teresa’s birth with the book she wanted written.

The great frustration in any national crisis is the sense of impotence, the inability of the individual to make a difference. And yet, we do have power, our choices do matter.

In the end, Mother Teresa showed us the power of one the power of a single person, clinging to the Creator, to handle enormous change and turn it to good, and to become a luminous force in the darkest of times.

Her lessons can prepare us, as no political plan or economic program ever can, to navigate the trials that await us with grace, and even to turn them into blessing. This is true change that lasts. This is genuine recovery, from the inside out.

“Anyone wanting to live and love without fear will want to read Secret Fire.” —-Jim Towey, former Director, White House Office of Faith-Based & Community Initiatives

“Secret Fire speaks to Mother Teresa’s deepest motivations.” –Fr. Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C., Postulator, Director, Mother Teresa Center, Editor, Come, be My Light

  1. That does sound like an excellent book, one I would want to read. A book that would make me want to join the St. James Book Club.
