I love this book! I could hardly put it down. Having spent some time in a religious community myself, I could relate to many of the incidents between the sisters - and especially between sisters and their superiors. The Missionaries of Charity are so well known throughout the world. It was fascinating to see what really goes on behind the scenes.
I used to think Mother Teresa's "dark night of the soul" was genuine, but now I'm not so sure. It seems more like something she brought on herself by not being open to the working of the Holy Spirit. Of course, she thought she was open - but in many ways, she allowed herself to be controlled by the Pope, by Church teachings/traditions and by the wishes of certain senior sisters. While we think of her as so holy, she had her weaknesses like anyone else.
