Many have called her a saint. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and India's highest civilian honor, the Jewel of India, in 1980. Pope John Paul II declared her 'Blessed,' beatifying her in 2003. For nearly fifty years Mother Teresa advocated for the poor and homeless, ministered to the sick, provided hospice for the afflicted, and embodied the very essence of humanitarianism. Newly revised and updated, this edition includes a personal insight into the beatification and continuing process of canonization for Mother Teresa, the ongoing work of the Missionaries of Charity, and her 'dark night of the soul.'
