Mother Teresa by Navin ChawlaI read this book years ago - it came into my life at a time I needed it - I enjoyed the book and was humbled by all that she gave - with that said there is a part of me that is sad that she gave up so much and that after her death her writings detailed how detached she felt from God - this was depressing to me on many levels - I do think anyone with a brain questions - but I do not believe God is about scarcity but is about abundance - for someone to give all of themselves and have so little joy - heartbreaking - she also wrote that she believed when she died she would continue to feel distanced from Jesus - I am not sure I believe in the whole father, son and holy ghost trinity - but I like to think that Ms. Mother Theresa was welcomed with open arms and is dancing and joyful where ever she rests
