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.
