The Turning
The Sisters Who Left
Thousands of women gave up everything to follow Mother Teresa, joining her storied Catholic order, the Missionaries of Charity. But some found that life inside this fiercely private religious order was not what they’d imagined. Former sisters who worked closely with Mother Teresa describe her bold vision and devotion to charity and prayer. But they also share stories of suffering and forbidden love, abuse and betrayal. If you make a lifelong vow, what does it mean to break it? What is the line between devotion and brainwashing? Can you truly give yourself to God?

Honest truth
Sincerely appreciate the work behind this podcast and the openness of the former sisters/courageous women. So much honesty and openness. Blown away by their strength.

There’s nothing like it
This is genuinely one of my favourite podcasts and I’m so happy that it exists, it is exploring stories that won’t be heard anywhere else. Thank you to everyone who worked on it, it’s not easy but very important listening
