DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Born a humble girl in what is now Albania, Agnes Bojaxhiu lived a charitable life. She pledged herself to a religious order at the age of 18 and chose the name Sister Teresa, after the patron saint of missionaries. While teaching in India, where famine and violence had devastated the poor, Teresa shed her habit and walked the streets of Calcutta tending to the needs of the destitute. Her charity work soon expanded internationally, and her name remains synonymous with compassion and devotion to the poor.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Known throughout her life as Mother Teresa, Saint Teresa of Calcutta spent her whole life working for the poor and the underprivileged. Born in 1910, Saint Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun and missionary who moved to India and founded the Missionaries of Charity. Even after her death in 1997, the Missionaries of Charity is working for people dying with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and leprosy, running orphanages, schools and soup kitchens, operating dispensaries and mobile clinics, and providing counseling to children and their families. There are more than 5,000 sisters associated with this Roman Catholic organization and it is active in 133 countries around the world, all thanks to their founder, Mother Teresa. After her death, the process of canonization began with beatification, which proved that she had done miracles. Thus, in 2016 Mother Teresa became Saint Teresa of Calcutta. So, who was Mother Teresa? Where was she born and what prompted her to commit to a life dedicated to the service of others? How has she served humankind and how was she honored for her service? Let’s find out in this e-book dedicated to the life of Saint Teresa of Calcutta.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A personality of Mother Teresa's calibre and global reach does not come about by chance. To provide a well-rounded portrait of this influential figure, this book approaches her in the context of her familial background and ethnic, cultural and spiritual milieus. Her life and work are explored in the light of newly-discovered information about her family, the Albanian nation's spiritual tradition before and after the advent of Christianity, and the impact of the Vatican and other influential powers on her people since the early Middle Ages. Focusing on her traumas, ordeals and achievements as a private individual and a public missionary, and her complex spirituality, this book contends that Mother Teresa's life and her nation's history, especially her countrymen's relationship with Roman Catholicism, are interconnected. Unravelling this interconnectedness is essential to understanding how this modern spiritual and humanitarian icon has come to epitomise her ancient nation's cultural and spiritual DNA.
