for God: The Spiritual Lessons of Mother Teresa
The Twentieth Century was deeply impacted by one of the greatest,
most inspiring spiritual leaders of all time: Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
For millions of people around the world, Mother Teresa stood as
the ultimate example of belief in action. She was living proof that
one person, filled with love, purpose and determination, really
can make a difference - can, in fact, touch the entire world.
So many of us on the spiritual path would like to have even a fraction
of the spiritual clarity that motivated this tiny powerhouse to
accomplish such monumental good. But how can we get it? What was
the spiritual sustenance that kept Mother Teresa going day in and
day out? What were the beliefs and principles she lived by? What
made her persevere in the face of such adversity? How did she overcome
the fear and anxiety that plagues us all from time to time?
These questions and many others are made clear in an extraordinary
and exclusive new audio program that Nightingale-Conant is honored
to be able to offer to our customers: Thirsting for God: The Spiritual
Lessons of Mother Teresa.
A deeply affecting audio program unlike any other you've experienced!
Many were familiar with the work Mother did and the causes she
fought so passionately for. But comparatively few people had an
up-close-and-personal knowledge of the woman herself. One of the
fortunate ones who did was a man named Father Angelo Devananda Scolozzi
Mother Teresa is speaking on each session!
For more than two decades, Fr. Angelo worked with Mother co-founding
a lay association, contemplative oriented, at the service of the
spiritually poorest of the poor. At first it was called Brothers
of the Word and slowly evolved to what is now the Universal Fraternity
of the Word Third Order of the Missionaries of Charity M.C.III.O.,
a movement which includes Christians of all denominations and people
of other faiths.
During the years they worked together, Father Angelo recorded many
of Mother Teresa's conversations, reflections, and work in action.
Recently, he made some of these recording available to us. Now,
we in turn are making them available to the many millions of people
who wish to know more about-and learn how to do with their lives
something beautiful for God from- this incredible woman.
We have extracted the most powerful of this material, woven it
together with Father Angelo's personal insights into Mother's thoughts
and actions, and combined it with practical suggestions for applying
her remarkable wisdom and example to the contemporary situations
and challenges we encounter each day.
The result is something truly unprecedented: A rare and precious
glimpse into Mother Teresa's private thoughts, inner workings and
and a practical blueprint for creating
an inner and outer life of deeply authentic spirituality, according
to her example.
A profoundly personal encounter with one of
the greatest spiritual leaders of our time
Thirsting for God will introduce you to the flesh-and-blood person
behind Mother Teresa's familiar white and blue sari: a tough and
passionate spiritual messenger with a single-minded mission. In
her own words and voice, and through the daily activities captured
on these recordings, she reveals her thoughts on a range of spiritual

It may surprise you to learn that Mother Teresa had moments of
doubt, frustration and despair, just as all of us do. You'll discover
the tools she used to overcome these dark moments and emerged each
time with an even stronger vision and resolve-and how you can do
Bridging Mother's words and Father Angelo's reflections to our
own lives today are the practical insights of Dr. Lou Tartaglia,
the author of many books on both personal and spiritual development
and a confidant of Father Angelo.
Drawing on real examples from his own experiences and those of
others, Dr. Tartaglia provides the critical connection between the
message Mother shares and our place in contemporary Western society.
He offers concrete suggestions for implementing Mother's message
in our daily lives, and demonstrates that this message has deep
and significant relevance for everyone - regardless of our particular
religious affiliations or spiritual beliefs.
