Mother Teresa: Advent and Christmas

A new book published in Ireland by Irish writer and documentary-maker, John Scally, provides fresh insights into the Mother Teresa’s views on Advent and Christmas.

John Scally, is one of the few people in Ireland to whom Mother Teresa corresponded.

Back in February 1993, she agreed to meet the young journalist for an interview when she came to Dublin to be presented with the Freedom of the City.

John talks about what an inspiring moment that was and how it sealed his life-long interest in this remarkable woman. He explains how her Irish connection makes her so relevant to us and that she was originally inspired as a young girl by hearing stories of Loretto nuns working amongst the poor.

He also talks of her doubts, struggles and questions, even as she exemplified the most Christian of lives.
‘Mother Teresa on Advent and Christmas’ is published by Columba Press.
