Mother Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, typically referred to as Saint Teresa of Calcutta in the Catholic Church, was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. She was born in Skopje (today the capital of North Macedonia), which was then part of the Ottoman Empire's Kosovo Vilayet. After eighteen years in Skopje, she went to Ireland and ultimately to India, where she spent the remainder of her life. 
Teresa formed the Missionaries of Charity in the year 1950, a Roman Catholic spiritual order with about 4,500 nuns active in about 133 nations in the year 2012. The group runs houses for clients with HIV/AIDS, leprosy, and tuberculosis who are near death. Soup kitchen areas, dispensaries, mobile centers, kids' and family therapy programs, and also orphanages and schools, are all part of the company. Members swear chastity, poverty, and obedience, and also a 4th vow: "dedicated free service to the poorest of the poor." 
Teresa got many awards, and that includes the Ramon Magsaysay Peace Reward in the year 1962 and the Nobel Peace Reward in the year 1979. 
This celebrated Catholic saint has been the topic of discussion in many high circles. Let’s take a look at what happened in her life, and what she did.
