Mother Teresa's Life
Mother Teresa was born around August 26, 1910, in Skopje, the current capital of the Republic of Macedonia. She died on September 5, 1997 in Calcutta, India. She is the youngest of three children; Gonxha, Aga, and Lazar. Her family was poor during her life, but that didn’t stop her from changing the world. At the age of eighteen she went off to become a nun that was the last time she saw her mom. A year after her death, the pope nominated her as a saint. Her full name is Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta but her birth name is Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. In Calcutta, Sister Teresa taught geography and cathechism at St. Mary's High School. Mother Theresa’s famous prayer is “Dear Jesus, help me to spread the fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with The Spirit and Love. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that all my life may only be a radiance of Thine… Amen.
