Mother Teresa

Saint, Nun (1910–1997)

Mother Teresa, an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary known in the Catholic church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, devoted her life to caring for the sick and poor. At the age of 12, she strongly felt the call of God to be a missionary. Considered one of the 20th Century’s greatest humanitarians, she was canonized as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in 2016.

Mother Teresa’s parents, Nikola and Dranafile Bojaxhiu, were of Albanian descent and a devout Catholic family. Her father was an entrepreneur who worked as a construction contractor and a trader of medicines and other goods.

Teresa was baptised Gonxha Agnes, received her First Communion at the age of five and a half and was confirmed in November 1916. In 1919, when Mother Teresa — then Agnes — was only 8 years old, her father suddenly fell ill and died.

At the age of 18, Teresa left her childhood home in Skopje and joined the Sisters of Loreto, an Irish community of nuns with missions in India. After a few months of training in Dublin she was sent to India, where on May 24, 1931, she took her initial vows as a nun, choosing the name Teresa to honor Saints Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux.
