40 days with Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa of Calcutta was known around the world for her work with the “poorest of the poor.” But what was her real message?

What was it that drove this holy saint to live such radical charity? Her answer is simple, yet staggering…

Let St. Teresa of Calcutta be your guide in I Thirst: 40 Days with Mother Teresa.

Divided into seven main sections, these meditations will provoke prayer on:

• The Dynamics of Thirst
• Prayer as Thirst
• Our Lady's Example in Meeting God's Thirst
• Thirst in the Service of God
• Sharing in the Thirst of Christ
• Jesus as the Incarnation of God's Thirst
• Satiated Thirst

I Thirst provides an opportunity to spend a few minutes every day with Mother Teresa and the thirst of our Lord. It provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy, and to meet the thirst of God with our own thirst for him.

We have been created to love and be loved, and God has become man to make it possible for us to love as he loved us. He makes himself the hungry one, the naked one, the homeless one, the sick one, the one in prison, the lonely one, the unwanted one... He is hungry for our love.

Mother Teresa
"Fr. Langford was confessor and retreat master for Mother Teresa’s religious sisters, as well as her confidante, in a privileged position to know the secrets Jesus had confided to her. Thus to have in this book, I Thirst, Fr. Langford’s retreat notes on Mother’s understanding of Jesus’ cry from the cross, is to have a priceless treasure. The untold riches of Mother Teresa’s heart – which are nothing but the untold riches of Christ’s own Heart – are here before us in these pages."
