Moore's foreword in new edition about Saint Teresa

Publishers Weekly writes in "Mother Teresa Books Cluster Around Canonization" that the canonization of Mother Teresa on 4 September 2016 is bringing new, and new editions of old books to market. The list of titles includes No Greater Love Commemorative Edition:
"With a foreword by Thomas Moore (Care of the Soul), this book was originally published in 1997 and has sold almost 210,000 copies in hardcover and trade paperback editions, according to NWL [New World Library, publisher]. In her writings, Mother Teresa contemplates love, prayer, giving, service, poverty, forgiveness, and Jesus, and the book ends with a short biography and an interview with her about working with the poor and the dying. The new edition also includes Pope John Paul II’s homily from Mother Teresa’s Beatification Mass on Oct. 19, 2003."
