A collection of previously unreleased writings by Mother Teresa will be published in August, weeks before the late Nobel Peace Prize winner is to be canonised.
Image, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, told the Associated Press on Tuesday that it has set an August 16 release date for A Call to Mercy: Hearts to Love, Hands to Serve.
The material in the book focuses on mercy and compassion and was compiled by Fr Brian Kolodiejchuk, who has led the cause for Mother Teresa’s sainthood.
On September 4, Pope Francis will declare Blessed Teresa of Calcutta a saint. She died in 1997, at age 87.
Kolodiejchuk also edited Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light: The Private Writings of the Saint of Calcutta, published in 2007
