The whole world remembers the name of Mother Teresa, whose life was very unusual. She was Albanian by blood but spent most of her life in India and once said about herself that she belonged to the world.
Born in 1910, Mother Teresa was a Catholic nun2 who devoted 45 years to poor, sick, lonely and dying people. Mother Teresa founded an order which gives “wholehearted and free service3 to the poorest and the poor”. Now the order consists of about 4,500 sisters working in 133 countries. Mother Teresa received the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize.
Her real name was Agnes and she came from Kosovo, Albania. At the age of 18 she left home, learned English and went to teach children in India. When Agnes was 21, she became a nun and chose for herself the name of Teresa, now world-famous. Though Teresa enjoyed teaching schoolchildren, there was something she could not put up with: at that time there were a lot of poor people in Calcutta, hundreds of them died from hunger and illness. Teresa knew t hat if she wanted to help them, she had to live among them. That was how she started working with the poor in the most terrible parts of Calcutta and collecting money for them. Then people gave her the name of Mother Teresa. She offered food and medical help to those who needed them and went on teaching children. Soon she was joined by a group of young women who wanted to help “the poorest among the poor” together with her. That was how the order began.
Soon they opened the first Home for the Dying, a free hospice for the poor where they received medical help, love and care. Then they opened a home for children who had no parents and started working in some countries outside India. Sisters of her order went to the most dangerous places where people needed their care. Mother Teresa lived a fairly long life doing the duties of the head of her order practically until she died in 1997. She certainly belonged to those who change the world for the better.
