The great saints devoted their lives to the love of God and of others. Their fascinating life stories will help children discover the great adventure of holiness. This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of such a great saint who lived in our times.

Amid the slums of Calcutta, Mother Teresa offered a comforting smile, consoling arms, soothing hands, a kind look that gave dignity, tears of compassion, and the light of Jesus in the darkness of great poverty. She found God in the poorest of the poor; she cherished them and became a mother to all. She is a powerful witness that -whatever we do for one of the least of our brothers, we do for Jesus- (cf. Matthew 25:40)

Mother Teresa founded an order of sisters to work with her to serve the poorest of the poor, the Missionaries of Charity. When she passed away in 1997 at the age of eighty-seven, the government of India honored her with a state funeral. A million people lined the streets that day to honor their beloved saint. Her tomb quickly became a place of prayer for people of all faiths, rich and poor alike.

Mother Teresa will be canonized a Saint by Pope Francis on September 4.
