Mother Teresa, born as Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu on August 26, 1910, in Skopje, now part of North Macedonia, was a prominent figure in the Catholic Church and a renowned missionary. She dedicated her life to serving the poor, sick, and marginalized, and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness worldwide. The Missionaries of Charity started with a small group of 13 members and grew steadily over the years, establishing hundreds of missions, schools, hospitals, and shelters around the world.
Mother Teresa’s unwavering commitment to the poorest of the poor gained international recognition and earned her numerous accolades. In 1979, she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work.
- Despite the acclaim, she remained humble, considering herself a servant of God and an instrument of His love.
- Her legacy of compassion and service to humanity.
- Her encouraging acts of kindness, charity, and unconditional love for the less fortunate.
Our RWC kids were so inspired through this missionary story and are eager to serve the world like Mother Teresa.
