An Unquenchable Thirst

Mary Johnson

Publisher:Hachette Australia

An Unquenchable Thirst is the story of Mary Johnson's twenty years as a Missionary of Charity working for Mother Teresa in service to the world's poor. It is a fascinating depiction of the daily struggle to live a life of religious service. At seventeen, Johnson experienced her calling when she saw a photo of Mother Teresa on the cover of Time magazine, and eighteen months later found herself in religious training in a South Bronx convent. Not without difficulty, this boisterous, independent-minded teenager eventually adapted to the sisters' austere life of poverty and devotion, but beneath the white-and-blue sari beat the heart of an ordinary young woman who faced the simple and profound struggles we all share each day, the same desires, for love and connection and meaning and identity. After 20 years, Johnson left the order and has since left the Church altogether. The story of this complicated, extraordinary woman will speak to atheists and Christians alike; to anyone who has ever grappled with the mysteries and wonders of faith.
