Highlights

Mother Teresa quotes: The main objective of "The Missionaries of Charity" was to take care of people, whom no one else was willing to take care of.

Mother Teresa quotes: In 1910, Mother Teresa was born in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Not much is known about her early life, but at an early age, she wanted to be a nun and serve by helping the poor and needy. At the age of 18, she received permission to join a group of nuns in Ireland. After a few months of training, with the Sisters of Loreto, they gave her permission to travel to India. She made her formal religious vows in 1931 and chose to bear the name of Saint Therese of Lisieux, the patron saint of missionaries.

Upon her arrival in India, she began working as a teacher; However, the extensive poverty of Calcutta left a deep impression on her, and this led her to start a new order called "The Missionaries of Charity." The main objective of this mission was to take care of people, whom no one else was willing to take care of. Mother Teresa felt that serving the needy was a fundamental principle of the teachings of Jesus Christ.
