Born a humble girl in what is now Albania, Agnes Bojaxhiu lived a charitable life. She pledged herself to a religious order at the age of 18 and chose the name Sister Teresa, after the patron saint of missionaries. While teaching in India, where famine and violence had devastated the poor, Teresa shed her habit and walked the streets of Calcutta tending to the needs of the destitute. Her charity work soon expanded internationally, and her name remains synonymous with compassion and devotion to the poor.

In this frank and damning expos of the Teresa cult, Hitchens details the nature and limits of one woman's mission to help the world's poor. He probes the source of the heroic status bestowed upon an Albanian nun whose only declared wish was to serve God. He asks whether Mother Teresa's good works answered any higher purpose than the need of the world's privileged to see someone, somewhere, doing something for the Third World. He unmasks pseudo-miracles, questions Mother Teresa's fitness to adjudicate on matters of sex and reproduction, and reports on a version of saintly ubiquity which affords genial relations with dictators, corrupt tycoons and convicted frauds. Is Mother Teresa merely an essential salve to the conscience of the rich West, or an expert PR machine for the Catholic Church? In its caustic iconoclasm and unsparing wit, The Missionary Position showcases the devastating effect of Hitchens' writing at its polemical best.

Mother Teresa is the personification of mercy and compassion reaching out to alleviate the suffering of millions the world over. She is one of those rare persons who transcended all barriers of race, religion, creed and nationality. Mother Teresa started her mission, the Missionaries of Charity, with just a fiver and she has built up a sort of holy empire the donations to which would stagger many an entrepreneur with mind-boggling figures-with an annual donation estimate of about 100 crores. Although wedded to a life of penance and continence, suffering and endurance, the Mother always exuded a benign smile all around. She was bestowed with the Bharat Ratna and the Nobel Peace Prize and she has already been beatified as prelude to her canonization for her benign services.

Mother Teresa is widely recognized as one of the most inspiring and best-loved figures of the 20th century. At the age of 18, she joined the Irish order of the Sisters of Loreto and, in 1950, founded her own order, the Missionaries of Charity, whose work was to provide 'free service to the poor and the unwanted, irrespective of caste, creed, nationality or race'. She firmly believed that there could not be any worship more sublime than the service of humanity, and in 1979 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her work. The author spent many hours with Mother Teresa, and much of BLESSED MOTHER TERESA is in her own words. Following her life from her childhood in Albania, via Dublin, to the streets of Calcutta, this book exudes her love, dignity and faith. Authorized by her community in Calcutta, it is a simple and compelling tribute to a remarkable person, whose charity and compassion touched the world.
