Title -  Mother Teresa

 

Description -  Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, commonly called Mother Teresa, and known in the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta (August 26, 1910 - September 5, 1997), an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary.  She was born in Skopje (now the capital of North Macedonia), then part of the Kosovo Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire.  After living in North Macedonia for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life. 

 

In 1950, Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation that had over 4,500 nuns and was active in 133 countries in 2012.  The congregation manages homes for people who are dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis.  It also runs soup kitchens, dispensaries, mobile clinics, children's and family counselling programmes, as well as orphanages and schools.  Members take vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, and also profess a fourth vow -- to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor."
