Mother Teresa was born on August 26, 1910 in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia. She died on September 5, 1997. She was a person with a great soul, and a person who followed the Word of the Lord. She saw that there was one God, and that every person is equal to one another. She said that, “We should help Hindus become better Hindus, a Muslim a better Muslim, and a Catholic a better Catholic.” She found the Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa was shone as the warm light of God's love and compassion on us all.
Mother Teresa was a pious person whose life was devoted to charity work. At a young age she joined a youth group at her local parish. When Mother Teresa was 12 she heard a call from God, he wanted her to devote her life to him, which caused her to start being more religious which set her up for her future. 6 years later she went to join The Sisters of Loreto in Ireland. There she contracted tuberculosis and had to go to Darjeeling to recover. While recovering she was called by God to go and live among the poor. So she sailed to India to teach at an order in the slums of Calcutta. She founded her order of nuns some years later in 1948. All of this would prepare her for her future in humanitarian and charitable work.
Mother Teresa worked with the blind and the disabled. She also found a congregation and dedicated it to serving the poor and the homeless. Mother Teresa also devoted her life to serving those who weren’t as fortunate as her. In addition she did some public speaking. She spoke about divorce, abortion, and contraception. She was important for giving back to her community. What she gave back wasn’t really tangible things. She gave back her knowledge and her experiences in life. She is not canonized as a saint yet, but she is in the process. She is being canonized for her devotion for serving the poor, homeless, and the less fortunate, the blind, and the disabled. She also built places to serve the people in India.
Mother Teresa won the Nobel Peace Prize. She is in the process of being canonized to be a saint. Many people benefited from her work. The blind, aged, disabled, lepers, poor, and sick all benefited greatly from Mother Teresa’s work. She dedicated her whole life to this work. She wanted to build a better society and help those who nobody else would help. She does not have a feast day, since she is not yet canonized. We are waiting for her to be canonized so we can celebrate her on a feast day. The most impressive thing about her was her undying faith that God had called her to suffer in the hope of making other’s lives better. She gave her life to those who were less fortunate than her. Her work still benefit’s us today by inspiring us to give to the poor and serve others as she did.
