About Mother Teresa

Saint Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 to 5 September 1997) also known as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, was a Roman Catholic religious sister and missionary. She was born in Skopje (modern Republic of Macedonia). After having lived in Macedonia for some eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived her life till the last breath. Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, now known as Mother Teresa, was the third and final child born to her Albanian Catholic parents, Nikollë and Dranafile Bojaxhiu, in the city of Skopje (a predominantly Muslim city in the Balkans). Her father was an entrepreneur and who worked as a construction contractor and a trader of medicines and other goods. When Mother Teresa was about eight years old, her father died unexpectedly. Agnes attended a convent and primary school and a secondary school. When Mother Teresa was 12 years old, she began to feel called to serve God as a nun. In 1928, 18-year-old Mother Teresa travelled to Ireland and then on to India and never saw her mother or sister again. It took more than two years to become a Loreto nun. After spending six weeks in Ireland Mother Teresa then travelled to India in 1929. After two years as a novice, Mother Teresa took her first vows as a Loreto nun on May 24, 1931. As a new Loreto nun, Mother Teresa (known then only as Sister Teresa, a name she chose after St. Teresa of Lisieux) settled in to the Loreto Entally convent in Kolkata (previously called Calcutta) and began teaching history and geography at the convent schools. In 1935, 25-year-old Mother Teresa was given a special exemption to teach at a school outside of the convent, St. Teresa's. After two years at St. Teresa's, Mother Teresa took her final vows on 24 May 1937 and officially became "Mother Teresa."

Almost immediately after taking her final vows, Mother Teresa became the principal of St. Mary's, one of the convent schools and was once again restricted to live within the convent's walls.

"A call within a call" September 10, 1946, a day now annually celebrated as "Inspiration Day," Mother Teresa received what she described as a "call within a call." She had been traveling on a train to Darjeeling when she received an "inspiration," a message that told her to leave the convent and help the poor by living among them. Mother Teresa was granted permission to leave the convent for one year to help the poorest of the poor.

In March 1949, Mother Teresa was joined by her first helper, a former pupil from Loreto. Soon she had ten former pupils helping her.

At the end of Mother Teresa's pro visionary year, she petitioned to form her own order of nuns, the Missionaries of Charity. Her request was granted by Pope Pius XII; the Missionaries of Charity was established on 7 October 1950.
