Who is Mother Teresa?

Mother Teresa

Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu and commonly known as Mother Teresa of Calcutta (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), was an Albanian-born Indian Roman Catholic nun. "By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus." In late 2003, she was beatified, the third step toward possible sainthood. A second miracle credited to Mother Teresa is required before she can be recognized as a saint by the Catholic church. Mother Teresa was fluent in five languages: Bengali, the local language of the people of Kolkata, Albanian, Serbo-Croatian, English, and Hindi.

Famous quotes containing the words teresa and/or mother:

    If sometimes our poor people have had to die of starvation, it is not that God didn’t care for them, but because you and I didn’t give, were not an instrument of love in the hands of God, to give them that bread, to give them that clothing; because we did not recognize him, when once more Christ came in distressing disguise, in the hungry man, in the lonely man, in the homeless child, and seeking for shelter.
    —Mother Teresa (b. 1910)

    Shee said, Lullabye, my owne deere child!
    Lullabye, deere child, deere!
    I wold thy father were a king,
    Thy mother layd on a beere!

    ‘Peace now,’ he said, ‘good Faire Ellen,
    And be of good cheere, I thee pray,
    And the bridall and the churching both,
    They shall bee upon one day.’
    Unknown. Child Waters (l. 157–164)
