Item Description...
A priest shares his memories of Mother Teresa while shedding light on her personal letters, including why she once expressed feelings of being a "saint of darkness."

Publishers Description

The world was shocked when the letters of Mother Teresa were published last year for the first time. The media focused attention at once on the unexpected phenomenon of darkness in the life of the saint, the astonishing revelation that, for decades, Mother Teresa had struggled mightily with belief in God. To some, this seemed to lend support to the arguments of the "new atheists." But what we are offered in this beautiful book is, at last, a serious grappling with the deeper meaning of her darkness, a work of sharp and unusual insight, written by someone who knew her.

In this intimate look at her "private writings," Paul Murray illumines the meaning of a life which is only now beginning to be understood.

"I Loved Jesus in the Night" is one priest's compelling account of meeting with the saint of Calcutta. Sharing anecdotes and first-hand experiences, Paul Murray offers a glimpse into why Mother Teresa could declare, in one of her letters, that if ever she were to "become a saint," she would surely be one of "darkness."

This very personal yet powerful book is an attempt to come to terms with the dark night experiences endured by Mother Teresa in the light of the Gospel and the mystical teachings of St John of the Cross. And something else as well...revelations of Mother Teresa's sense of humor

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I loved Jesus in the Night.  Nov 9, 2009
This is a tiny but a powerful little book attempting to explain the darkness of faith and doubt. It actually makes one's head spin at the possibility of explaining something which seems inexplicable. In many ways if the all saintly Mother Teresa went through it, then many of us experiencing the turmoil and doubts of faith and life - seem to be alright. Paul Murray the author did a good job.
Tiny, but powerful  Sep 16, 2009
This small volume touched me deeply. It removes Mother Teresa from the pedestal we like to put her on and makes her faith something we can relate to. A very readable examination of the "dark night" experienced by many people of faith. I recommend it to anyone who wants to better understand Mother Teresa's (and their own) faith journey.
Significance?  Jul 5, 2009
Did anybody else consider that the 7OX7, with a couple of spaces added, could actually be a reference to "seventy times seven" (70 x 7)? In a book that's so religious, I wonder....
I thank God that someone at my library put this little book on the New Books shelf, and that I picked it up.  Apr 18, 2009
This little book is by far the most meaningful reflection about Mother Teresa that I have ever seen. In elegant economy, it opens the meaning of her life. This book carries us over a frontier, like all great books. It will be profoundly helpful to me, and I will return to it again and again, the way I do to Bernard Bro's deep reflection on Therese of Lisieux, THE LITTLE WAY.

(Thank you, librarian, for setting it out on a feature shelf, and thank you , God, for sending me to the library, where I so rarely go these days, because I use this site so much.)
