Mother Teresa - "Unless life is lived for others, it is not worthwhile."

Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (1910-1997), born in Macedonia, is known as Mother Teresa, founder of the order of the Missionaries of Charity.

This Roman Catholic congregation of women is dedicated to the very poor, particularly the destitute of India. Her order has opened numerous centers, serving the blind, the aged, the crippled, the lepers, as well as, those who are dying.

When Pope Paul awarded her the Pope John XXIII Peace Prize, he proclaimed her to be “an example and symbol of the discovery…that man is our brother.” She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.

book description: Born a humble girl in what is now Albania, Agnes Bojaxhiu lived a charitable life. She pledged herself to a religious order at the age of 18 and chose the name Sister Teresa, after the patron saint of missionaries. While teaching in India, where famine and violence had devastated the poor, Teresa shed her habit and walked the streets of Calcutta tending to the needs of the destitute. Her charity work soon expanded internationally, and her name remains synonymous with compassion and devotion to the poor.
