Thirsting for God
Fr. Angelo Scolozzi, M.C.III.O, and Dr. Lou Tartaglia
* Thirsting for God: The Spiritual Lessons of Mother Teresa The 20th century
was deeply impacted by one of the greatest, most inspiring spiritual leaders of
all time: Mother Teresa of Calcutta. For millions of people around the world,
Mother Teresa stood as the ultimate example of belief in action. She was living
proof that one person, filled with love, purpose and determination, really can
make a difference - can, in fact, touch the entire world. So many of us on the
spiritual path would like to have even a fraction of the spiritual clarity that
motivated this tiny powerhouse to accomplish such monumental good. But how can
we get it? What was the spiritual sustenance that kept Mother Teresa going day
in and day out? What were the beliefs and principles she lived by? What made her
persevere in the face of such adversity? How did she overcome the fear and
anxiety that plagues us all from time to time? These questions and many others
are made clear in an extraordinary and exclusive new audio program that
Nightingale-Conant is honored to be able to offer to our customers: Thirsting
for God: The Spiritual Lessons of Mother Teresa. A deeply affecting audio
program unlike any other you've experienced! Many were familiar with the work
Mother did and the causes she fought so passionately for. But comparatively few
people had an up-close-and-personal knowledge of the woman herself. One of the
fortunate ones who did was a man named Father Angelo Devananda Scolozzi
M.C.III.O. Mother Teresa is speaking on each session! For more than two decades,
Fr. Angelo worked with Mother co-founding a lay association, contemplative
oriented, at the service of the spiritually poorest of the poor. At first it was
called Brothers of the Word and slowly evolved to what is now the Universal
Fraternity of the Word Third Order of the Missionaries of Charity M.C.III.O., a
movement which includes Christians of all denominations and people of other
faiths. During the years they worked together, Father Angelo recorded many of
Mother Teresa's conversations, reflections, and work in action. Recently, he
made some of these recording available to us. Now, we in turn are making them
available to the many millions of people who wish to know more about-and learn
how to do with their lives something beautiful for God from- this incredible
woman. We have extracted the most powerful of this material, woven it together
with Father Angelo's personal insights into Mother's thoughts and actions, and
combined it with practical suggestions for applying her remarkable wisdom and
example to the contemporary situations and challenges we encounter each day. The
result is something truly unprecedented: A rare and precious glimpse into Mother
Teresa's private thoughts, inner workings and spiritual insightsÂ… and a
practical blueprint for creating an inner and outer life of deeply authentic
spirituality, according to her example. A profoundly personal encounter with one
of the greatest spiritual leaders of our time Thirsting for God will introduce
you to the flesh-and-blood person behind Mother Teresa's familiar white and blue
sari: a tough and passionate spiritual messenger with a single-minded mission.
In her own words and voice, and through the daily activities captured on
these recordings, she reveals her thoughts on a range of spiritual topics,
* The freedom that comes from "surrendering your will to a higher good"
* How to place your loving trust completely in God
* The key to the spiritual paradox that though our superiors may make
mistakes in commanding us, we are infallible in obeying.
* The greatest gift you can give to another human being
* What spiritual poverty really is, and why it can be far more destructive
than material poverty
* And much more It may surprise you to learn that Mother Teresa had moments
of doubt, frustration and despair, just as all of us do.
You'll discover the tools she used to overcome these dark moments and emerged
each time with an even stronger vision and resolve-and how you can do the same.
Bridging Mother's words and Father Angelo's reflections to our own lives today
are the practical insights of Dr. Lou Tartaglia, the author of many books on
both personal and spiritual development and a confidant of Father Angelo.
Drawing on real examples from his own experiences and those of others, Dr.
Tartaglia provides the critical connection between the message Mother shares and
our place in contemporary Western society. He offers concrete suggestions for
implementing Mother's message in our daily lives, and demonstrates that this
message has deep and significant relevance for everyone - regardless of our
particular religious affiliations or spiritual beliefs. Energize your outlook,
invigorate your soul, and discover your own life's calling Mother Teresa spent
her life on a journey of spirit, service, and incredible gift of self to
humanity. In this unique and enlightening audio series, you'll travel along that
journey with her. Along the way, you'll come to know the remarkable and
unexpectedly real person that was Mother Teresa. Even more importantly, you'll
discover an amazing set of spiritual principles that will empower you to live
more deeply, love more fully, answer your higher calling and become "unique and
