‘Mother Teresa: No Greater Love’: a Review
In The Seven Storey Mountain, Thomas Merton relates an encounter with his friend and fellow Columbia University student, Bob Lax. Merton had recently converted to Catholicism and told Lax he wanted to be a good Catholic. Lax shook his head. “What you should say is that you want to be a saint.”
True, but easier said than done – evidence of which might be Fr. Merton himself – assuming he really wanted to be a saint.
Better is Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu’s way: abandonment to the will of God. That’s why she’s Saint Mother Teresa. It’s not what you say, but what you do.
Her life, with its successes and struggles, is the subject of a new docudrama directed by David Naglieri, Mother Teresa: No Greater Love, which will premiere with screenings by Fathom Events on October 3rd and 4th
