Mother Teresa (1910-1997)
“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than a person who has nothing to eat. We must find each other.”
Mother Teresa was a Catholic Nun from Albania who lived and died in India. She said her calling was to belong to the world. Mother Teresa has influentially changed the world because of her compassion for people.
At the age of twelve, she knew that her true calling was to spread the love of Christ. On May 24, 1931 she took her vow to be a nun. Since then on, her love for people became known in her work.
In 1965, Mother Teresa was given permission to start her own order called, “The Missionaries of Charity.” Its primary function was to care and offer salvation for those who were neglected by society.
The Mission Charity has spread throughout the world where they now embark on relief work such as floods, epidemics and famine. In 1969, the Missionary Charity became an official International Association.
Mother Teresa knew no boundaries because she had gone all possible ways to help those that are in dire need. She is the true definition of love and peace and was recently canonized a Saint following the Catholic Tradition.
Mother received over 15 prices in her lifetime including the renowned Nobel Peace Price.

Mother knew no boundaries based on religion, colour, sex and you name the rest. Mother made many smile and especially in seasons like this, it must have meant a whole lot to a dying person here, an abandoned kid there or just a lonely soul!
That’s why Mother is my Heroine of the season and always
