Malcom Muggeridge


. . . .is the subject of several articles in the latest number of Touchstone Magazine. One particularly affecting passage I was reading this afternoon opens this way:

"You to me are like Nicodemus," Mother Teresa once wrote Malcolm Muggeridge, "and I am sure the answer is the same -- 'unless you become like a little child.' I am sure you will undertand beautifully everything if you would only 'become' a little child in God's hands. Your longing for God is so deep. . . .Christ is longing to be your Food. Surrounded with fullness of living food, you allow yourself to starve."
