'To be in love & yet not to love, to live by faith and yet not to believe. To spend myself and yet to be in total darkness.'

Teresa of Calcutta

I Loved Jesus in the Night is one priest’s compelling memories of the icon of compassion. Sharing anecdote and firsthand experiences, Fr. Paul Murray gives a glimpse into why Mother Teresa had feelings of being a “saint of darkness.” This very personal, yet powerful book is an attempt to understand the dark night experiences that she endured in the light of the Gospel and of the mystical teachings of St. John of the Cross. And something else as well…revelations of Mother Teresa’s sense of humour! Through this intimate look at her “private writings,” Paul Murray illumines the meaning of a life that is only now beginning to be understood.
