Teresa, whose full name was Anjez (Agnes) Gonxha Bojaxhiu, created the Order of Charity, which was committed to aiding the needy, in her native Albania. In 1979, she was given the Nobel Peace Prize and is regarded as one of the greatest humanitarians of the twentieth century by many.
According to CNN, the Catholic nun was canonized nine years after her death in 2016. When she became a nun, she took a vow of poverty and lived a simple life.
According to The New York Times after her death, her charity was one of the world’s wealthiest organizations, but the Vatican should have waited to canonize her because the group never acknowledged where its funds went or how they were spent.
According to reports, her institution did not follow rules like quarantining tuberculosis patients or prescribing pain medication while she was in charge. Mother Teresa, according to the source, believed that suffering brought one closer to God’s heart.
Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, better known as Mother Teresa of Calcutta, was born on August 27, 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia. Skopje was a part of the Ottoman Empire during the time of her birth, a large empire ruled by the Turks between the 15th and 16th centuries. Agnes was born to Albanian grocers Nikola and Dranafile Bojaxhiu, the last of their three children.
When Agnes was nine years old, her father died, bringing an abrupt end to her family’s pleasant, close-knit lifestyle. She was a member of a school organization dedicated to international missions while in a public school in Skopje, Macedonia (groups that travel to foreign countries to spread their religious beliefs).
As a child, she felt compelled to help others in need. As a teenager, Mother Teresa was particularly moved by the work being done in India by Yugoslav Jesuit missionaries stationed in Bengal, India. She felt called to this work.
Mother Teresa left home at the age of eighteen to join the Sisters of Loretto, an Irish religious order with a mission in Calcutta, India. First religious vows were taken in 1928 in Dublin, Ireland, and in 1937 in Darjeeling, India, where she was trained.
Mother Teresa began her career as a teacher and eventually the principal of a Calcutta girls’ high school. Despite its proximity to the city’s poorest neighborhoods, the majority of the school’s students come from well-to-do families.
Mother Teresa’s second vocation, or “call within a call,” occurred in 1946. She was compelled by an inner voice to leave the convent and assist the destitute outside of it. As a result, she was able to leave the Loretto Sisters in 1948 and begin a new endeavor under the leadership of the Archbishop of Calcutta.
