More Personal Growth, Spirituality


In this inspiring story of transformation, successful cardiologist Paul Wright shares the story of his dramatic shift in values and lifestyle, after seeking guidance from Mother Teresa, the person he considered the expert on living the Christian life. Mother Teresa told Wright that Jesus calls us all to lives of service, and here he shares Mother's message and her prescription for finding inner peace and happiness. Following the prescription means embracing both a life of service and the 10 spiritual attitudes that accompany such a life: compassion and love, contentment and gratitude, honesty, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, humility, community, faith, and reverence for human life.



"Presents Mother Teresa's great spiritual ideals and inspires other people to go on doing the work she did so well."

Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.
President Emeritus of The University of Notre Dame

"Honest and profound."

"Dr. Wright has worked with great energy in the last decade on programs to respond to the needs of "Christ in the distressing disguise of the poor." I suspect, however, that his greatest service to all of us may be this honest and profound account of transformations in his own life."

David Solomon, Director, Center for Ethics and Culture
The University of Notre Dame (from the foreword)


"An insightful, unique, and practical approach to Mother Teresa's wisdom and life."
