Today mark also the 20th anniversary of the death of a very inspirational woman famously called Mother Theresa. She was a humanitarian and spent many years lifting and carrying those who were dying or sick. She chose to serve the poorest of the poor and to live among them and love them as she saw beauty in every human being.

Around 1929 leaving her family to become a missionary was not easy but leaving the convent was even more difficult for her because she loved the work she was doing and it was there that she learned how to serve others.

During this time, Calcutta had a million poor people living in the streets,

to learn more about how to care for the sick and suffering, she went to Patna, India to receive a few months of medical training from the American Medical Missionaries.

When she returned to Calcutta she was alone on the streets as poor as those she longed to serve, has experienced a strong feeling of loss and almost of fear that was difficult to overcome but her strength did not let fear stand in her way.

She begged for food and supplies to help the poor. She also began teaching children how to care for themselves, saw a need for children to be educated so she taught them lessons by writing in the dirt because they had no books and nothing to write with. Each day more children gathered around for her lessons. It is during this time that she began to be called “Mother Teresa”.

In 1950, Mother Teresa officially established the Missionaries of Charity with 12 members. They all lived together in a small building that was donated to them. Over the years, Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity established homes all over the world for the dying, the sick, orphaned children, lepers, the aged, the disabled, and AIDS victims.

During the years of rapid growth, the world began to turn his eyes towards Mother Teresa, the work she had started with orphans, prisoners, sex workers, the sick, the dying, the disabled and the unwanted, she fed, washed, and cared for anyone who needed the assistance. strove to make the lives and deaths of those in need more peaceful and full of love.


She was granted numerous awards, beginning with the Indian Padmashri Award in 1962, the Pope John XXIII Peace Prize in 1971, the Nehru prize in 1972, notably the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 to honored her work, while an increasingly interested media began to follow her activities.

She will always be remembered for her charity, unselfishness, courage and her capacity for hard work with fidelity and joy.
