In September, Doubleday will release a book by Father Brian Kolodiejchuk calledMother Teresa: Come Be My Light. Father Kolodiejchuk, the postulator for Mother Teresa’s sainthood cause, has collected the amazing woman’s writings into a volume that shows the intensity of her holiness. Particularly revealing are the sections that highlight the severe “dark night of the soul” that haunted Mother Teresa for years.
An interesting article in Time that ran yesterday quotes Christopher Hitchens discussing what is revealed about Mother Teresa in the book:
“She was no more exempt from the realization that religion is a human fabrication than any other person, and that her attempted cure was more and more professions of faith could only have deepened the pit that she had dug for herself.”
