About Mother Teresa`s 100th Birth Anniversary

Mother Teresa was born into an Albanian Catholic family in Skopje on 26 August 1910 and given the name Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. At the age of 12 she felt God calling her to devote her life to Him as a missionary. In September 1928, when she was 18 years old, she joined the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, known as the Sisters of Loreto, in Ireland. Choosing St. Thérèse of Lisieux as her patron saint, she took the name "Sister Teresa“. From Ireland she was sent to India, arriving in Calcutta in 1929. Two years later she made her first profession of vows and was sent to teach at St. Mary School, Entally. On 24 May 1937 she made her final profession of vows and was henceforth known as "Mother Teresa“.
