Martyr

slide7
Mother Teresa, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, died on September 5, 1997, in her convent in India.
  • She was 87. Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910 in Skopje, Yugoslavia. She took the name "Teresa" after St. Teresa of Lisieux, patroness of the Missionaries.
slide8
In 1948, she came across a half-dead woman lying in front of a Calcutta hospital. She stayed with the woman until she died. From that point on, she dedicated the majority of her life to helping the poorest of the poor in India, thus gaining her the name "Saint of the Gutters."
slide9
She founded an order of nuns called the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India dedicated to serving the poor. Almost 50 years later, the Missionaries of Charity have grown from 12 sisters in India to over 3,000 in 517 missions throughout 100 countries world-wide.
slide10
In 1952, she founded a special home for the dying in a former temple in Calcutta. It was there that they would care for the dying Indians that were found on the streets. Mother Teresa saw goodness in everyone. She did not judge people. She wanted them to be able to die in peace and with dignity. For over 50 years, she worked selflessly helping the poor. This devotion won her respect throughout the world and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
slide11
Mother Teresa had suffered from heart problems. She suffered a serious heart attack in 1989. It was then that a pacemaker was installed. She died in 1997, suffering from malaria and being treated for a chest infection. Many people think of her as a living saint and she is still widely talked about today.
