Saint Teresa of Calcutta, commonly known as Mother Teresa, was a Roman Catholic nun and missionary renowned for her compassionate work with the poor and marginalized. Born in 1910 in Skopje, now part of North Macedonia, she joined the Sisters of Loreto and later founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950. Mother Teresa dedicated her life to serving the destitute, sick, and dying on the streets of Kolkata (Calcutta), India. Her selfless actions and deep spirituality earned her the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Mother Teresa’s simple yet profound message of love and empathy resonated globally, leading to the establishment of Missionaries of Charity centers across the world. She passed away on September 5, 1997. Her canonization as a saint in 2016 solidified her legacy of humility, charity, and commitment to the most vulnerable.
