Mother Teresa, one of the most significant nuns of the Catholic Church, both during her lifetime and after her death is today renowned worldwide.
Born in 1910 Mother Teresa claimed to have a sense of a strong spiritual connection to God when she was just 12-year-old. And by the age of 18, she joined the Sisters of Loretto, a Roman Catholic nuns’ congregation dedicated to preaching the gospel across India. She is well renowned for her efforts to alleviate poverty and assist the downtrodden in Calcutta’s (now Kolkata) worst neighborhoods.
Mother Teresa was such a revered figure in the Catholic Church that she was canonized after her death, which means that she was officially recognized as a “Saint” by the Catholic Church.
