Words to Live By: Mother Teresa

START

Take a note from the most iconic stars of yesterday-quite literally. Words to Live By is a compilation of the most memorable quotes from Old Hollywood on love, style, life, and more.

Mother Teresa, also known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was born AnjezĂ« Gonxhe Bojaxhiu on August 26, 1910 in Skopje, North Macedonia. By age 12, the Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary knew she wanted to devote herself to religious life. At 18, she moved to Ireland to learn English and join the Sisters of Loreto. She moved to India the next year, where she would spend the rest of her life caring for the poor. She founded the Missions of Charity in 1950, which managed homes for those dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy, and tuberculosis, as well as provided food, medical assistance, and counseling to those in need. She received many honors for her charity work throughout her lifetime, including the Nobel Peace Prize and Pacem in Terris award. At the time of her death in 1997, the Missions of Charity had over 4,000 sisters and 300 associated brothers running 610 missions in 123 countries. Almost 20 years later, she was canonized as a saint by Pope Francis for her virtuous work and miracles of healing. In honor of the late Mother Teresa’s birthday, CR remembers some of her most inspirational words on peace, love, and service.
