About Mother Teresa:
Mother Teresa, born Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, was one of the most notable figures in the Catholic Church. She is best known for her work in uplifting poverty and helping the marginalized in the poorest regions of Calcutta, India.
Made a saint after the church investigated miracles, she is one of the most inspiring religious icons in modern history. Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Skopje, the current capital of the Republic of Macedonia and was only eight years old when her father suddenly fell ill and died.
In 1946 Mother Teresa experienced a calling. On a train from Calcutta to the Himalayan foothills for a retreat, she said Christ spoke to her and told her to abandon teaching to work in the slums of Calcutta helping the poor and sick. After basic medical training, she voyaged for the first time into Calcutta’s slums with no more specific a goal than to aid the unwanted, the unloved and the uncared for.
