Interview About Mother Teresa

We've mentioned twice how much we enjoyed David Scott's new book about Mother Teresa, A Revolution of Love. Beliefnet has posted an interview with Scott, for anyone who wants more information. Here's an excerpt.

"What did she like and dislike most about America?

"She liked most a certain generosity she saw in the American spirit. Some of her first trips to America were all about gratitude for gifts. Like a local Catholic women's welfare association someplace in Peoria that was sending small sums of money. She would go and say thank you for that.

"But the heart of the culture–she saw a kind of soulless materialism that was sucking the life out of most people. She talked about the desire for more things becoming insatiable."
