Roman Catholic Nun
A Modern-day Saint
She was a selfless missionary who brought hope, love and salvation to the poorest of the poor and the abandoned. Her faith and good words transcended hardships and ultimately earned her international acclaim including the Nobel Peace Prize. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity, showed the secret of surrendering everything to God – our time, our money, our talent, our very selves. Certainly she was a diplomat unwilling to accept what others deemed impossible, fearlessly fighting for the unloved and the forgotten. Mother Teresa died in 1997, showing us that a heart full of love, is the key to giving all.
