Mother Teresa

Before you read Mother Teresa Quotes I’ll tell you in brief who she is? Mother Teresa, born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, is revered for her lifelong dedication to the poor, most notably the destitute masses of India. She was also honored as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in the Catholic Church. In 1928, at the age of eighteen, she went to Ireland to join the Loreto Convent in Rathfarnham, Dublin, and shortly thereafter traveled to India to work with the poor of Calcutta and lived there for most of her life.

In 1950, after studying nursing, she moved into the slums of the city and founded the Order of the Missionaries of Charity that had over 4500 nuns and was active in 133 countries in 2012. Mother Teresa was summoned to Rome in 1968 to found a home for the needy, and three years later in 1971, she was awarded the first Pope John XXIII Peace Prize. By the late 1970s, the Missionaries of Charity numbered more than a thousand nuns who operated sixty centers in Calcutta and over two hundred centers worldwide.
