    1. Mary Alice

      On Christmas Eve I unexpectedly met two of Mother Teresa's nuns. They were standing at the back doors of my church. They are never at my church. I must admit I get sort of depressed at holiday time, being alone and without a family to celebrate with. I made the "mistake" of going to the 4pm Christmas Eve mass. Well, that was packed with kids and parents which just made me feel even more alone. I also like to sit near this beautiful bronze bust of Mother Teresa that was donated to the church. I a [...]

      I must admit that I was somewhat hesitant to read this book at first. I am not a religious person, quite the opposite I would say. Furthermore, growing up in a religious environment I know that people who talk or write books on religion and faith can be very preachy and over-zealous in their views. I was further sceptical by the fact that the author of the book was Rev. Joseph Langford, the co-founder of Mother Teresa's priest's community, a man who spent much time in Mother Teresa's company.I d [...]

      I've always felt it was a privilege to have my lifespan overlap Mother Teresa's. I liked getting to know a person who best embodies goodness to me. Her "encounter" with the divine was not something I knew about and was intriguing to me. I was surprised to read that she admitted she loved comfort too much to be worthy of the calling she received.Her interpretation of Christ's pronouncement of "I thirst" -- that Christ thirsts for man's love -- is not something that had ever occurred to me. Though [...]

      A quick read and interesting (fyi: I am not a particularly relgious person). Obviously an inspiring woman who shames most of us at least a little. I like how she is portrayed as very human-she had struggles with faith but this didnt shake her perseverence. She also had some deep insight and the book makes much of her insight into the the quote of Jesus "I thirst" to mean that God thirsts for your adoration, much as a parents wants her child's love.

    5. Tristan Clements

      This is one of the best and most profound books I have ever read! It is full of both modern and ancient sources all supporting the same message and goal, and with every page you are taken into an deeper and more intimate encounter with the Love of God. The secrets revealed in this book are of the life changing sort and I would suggest anyone wanting to bring about change in their own life to read this book.

    6. H.L. Balcomb

      Father Joseph Langford had the incredible pleasure of working alongside Mother Teresa. His insights are captured in the book entitled MOTHER TERESA’S SECRET FIRE. The greatest lesson that I look away from this read came from page 230. “All self-seeking is empty – an ultimately futile.” If that advice sounds like a tall order of infinite proportion, Mother Teresa kindly reminds us that “Yesterday is gone; tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”

    7. Christian Barragan

      con este libro del padre Joseph Langford, empiezo mi conversión. Madre Teresa prefiere rezar y cuidar enfermos a la cual se le llamó. Nos habla del misterio que nos envuelve al ser bautizados. Amar es servir. Y orar para amar. La famosa placa afuera de sus capillas "Tengo sed" nos indica que debemos de dar de beber con agua pura (vida de Gracia) a nuestros hermanos. Y la Sagrada Forma nos hace más sensibles al dolor. PRCAGD

      I have changed my review mostly because of recent input by a priest form Rome who was Mother Teresa's confessor. He not only doesn't like this book but requests that none of the misionaries of charity read it. It is not part of their recommended reading. I have to respect his better understanding of Mother Teresa and what she really felt.

    9. Tasha enderby

      This book is a hard read, it's very repetitive. I am go greatful to of had my dear friend Angela who has had read many books on Mother Teresa to fill in with the back history of her life and her calling. I am glad we did this book in a group setting because I would have not been able to keep myself turning pages.

    10. Atlantis

      Sometimes the writing is a bit repetitive/wordy but this book is special in that the Priest who wrote this book had something very special to convey about Mother Teresa. He was sincerely passionate in that endeavor and that deserves commendation. This book is for everyone when they are ready to read it.

    11. Christine

      discussion of her Sept 10 encounter with Jesus on the train to Darjeeling and how it affected her calling and her life, explanations of her sharing Jesus's words on the cross: "I thirst"--God thirsts for us and longs for us to love him and be open to Him.

    12. Gillian

      Too academic for me at this moment. I might try again sometime It seemed to always be leading up to something, never getting there

    13. Cindy

      Everyone should read this book. It gives the story about Mother Teresa's life but it also gives meditations and other resources to feel the love that Jesus has for each of us and to love him back.

    14. Carmen

      Beautiful book with one very important and profound message and that is that God's thirst is for us to thirst for him.

    15. Deb
