Mother Teresa (1910 – 1997)
Humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Born in 1910 in Skopje, Macedonia, Mother Teresa (Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu) taught in India for 17 years before she experienced her "call within a call" to devote herself to caring for the sick and poor. Her order established a hospice; centers for the blind, aged, and disabled; and a leper colony. In 1979 she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work. She died in September 1997 and was beatified in October 2003. In December 2015, Pope Francis recognized a second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa, clearing the way for her to be canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta on September 4, 2016. Mother Teresa was the founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic congregation of women dedicated to helping the poor, and is considered one of the greatest humanitarians of the 20th century.
