Mother Teresa was born Agnes Goxnha Bojaxhiu on
August 26, 1910, in Albania. Later she became Mother Teresa when joining
an order of Loreto nuns. She founded the Missionaries of Charity, a
group of sisters dedicated to the needs of those who are suffering. For
her impact on the world, Mother Teresa received the 'Nobel Peace
Prize", the first ever awarded to a nun, on December 10th, 1979.
She brought love and
compassion to neglected people throughout the world. She continued to
dedicate her life to proclaiming God's love for all people especially
the poor dying, and abandoned.
