Not really her own words...

What Mother Teresa says is wonderful, but there is a narrator who adds too much and is quite the distraction. The title should have been "In Her Own Words, and much more on how I interpret them and then some..." So why aren't there more clergy and religious that communicate Jesus Christ like Mother Teresa? My goodness, if they would just regurgitate her "own words" when speaking or when giving homilies, then people would be much more inspired and converted... but of course, she ALSO lived what she preached... or maybe its more that she preached what she actually lived.

Remarkable telling other remarkable life

Mother Teresa was a phenomenal individual. She was called by God to do great things. She reminds us that he did not also called us to do great things. The narration in this book is excellent. The parts where we hear recordings of Mother Teresa are sometimes difficult to understand, but overall well worth the effort. I would highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to learn about Mother Teresa and improves her own spiritual life.

A re-read and re-read, I believe

I had the extreme pleasure of actually falling asleep to this book. Now, usually, when I fall asleep "listening" it's a frustrating exercise to try to find out where I actually stopped "listening". But in this case, I started dreaming ... with the book. Mother Teresa was sitting across from me at my kitchen table, telling me how to forgive people, grow in holiness and laugh more. I woke up with such peace and joy. I recommend and hope the same thing happens to you.

This is a great book because you can pretty much pop in anywhere and get some jewels of Mother Teresa's graceful answers to life's questions. Although the sound quality is sometimes quite poor and our little Albanian saint's accent can occasionally be difficult to understand it's still worth it.

There aren't many books in my 300+ audio collection that I really listen to over and over. Especially when you're dealing with difficult audio, but this one is a little gem.

I wish

Nothing against the father, but I was personally hoping to hear mainly mother Teresa. Wish there was a mother Teresa option instead of scrubbing through. Loved it though, thank you for bringing this piece. Might make my own personal rendition by downloading it on the computer. On YouTube there’s like no videos on mother Teresa, which I find shocking

Mother Teresa: In Her Own Words

This audio book is such a blessing for us to hear the words and lessons of a saint from the saint herself. It is a very humbling experience. The road to sainthood seems daunting but God calls us all to be saints. St. Teresa of Calcutta shows us how we can work toward doing God's will in our own life and she makes it seem very possible.

Life changing

If you read about Mother Theresa for to long - be warned it will change the way you see everyone you ever come into contact with. She was inspiring to hear in her own words however sometimes the audio quality was lacking. It is very old audio that they available, but worth the effort it take to hear her. Her life was A blessing to the world. A living example of loving and being only all for Jesus. Wonderful I can’t say enough good about it.

Magnificent words from a Saint

Great story with beautiful life lessons from Mother Theresa. Only negative was hard to hear at times due to recording quality, but still a great read!
