MOTHER TERESA SEEN BY
OTHERS:
Indira Gandhi
… St. Francis' beautiful and well-loved prayer…
eloquently epitomises the gentleness, the love
and the compassion that radiate from Mother
Teresa's tiny person.
Who else in this wide world reaches out to the
friendless and the needy so naturally, so simply
so effectively? Tagore wrote "there rest Thy feet
where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost".
That is where Mother Teresa is to be found -
with no thought of, or slightest discrimination
between colour or creed, language or country.
She lives the truth that prayer is devotion,
prayer is service. Service is her concern, her
religion, her redemption. To meet her Is to feel
utterly humble, the power of tenderness, the
strength of love.

OUR FOUNDRESS
MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA
"By blood and origin I am all Albanian.
My citizenship is Indian.
I am a Catholic nun.
As to my calling,
I belong to the whole world.
As to my heart,
I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.”
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
The future Mother Teresa of Calcutta, was born
in Skopje, present day North Macedonia, on 26
August 1910 and baptized the following day, 27
August. She was the youngest of five children,
two of whom died in infancy. Gonxha’s parents,
Nikola and Drana Bojaxhiu, provided a loving
home for their three children. The prosperity
and security of their family life was cut short,
by Nikola’s sudden death in 1918. At the age of
twelve, Gonxha felt a call to serve the poor and
at 18 she decided to join the Institute of the
Blessed Virgin Mary (Loreto nuns) in Ireland with
the intention to serve in India.
