Mother Teresa 112th birth anniversary: Mother Teresa needs no introduction. Regarded as the greatest humanitarian, she was a mother figure to millions. She founded the Missionaries of Charity – dedicated to helping the poor. In the Catholic Church, she is also known as Saint Teresa after she was canonized by Pope Francis in 2016.
Born to Albanian parents in Skopje on August 26, 1910, Mother Teresa was an inspiration to all. The Year 2022 marks the 112th birth anniversary of an Albanian-born nun who dedicated her life to the poor. She was awarded the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize.
Mother Teresa was beatified by Pope John Paul II on 19 October 2003, and was canonized by Pope Francis on 4 September 2016.
Even decades after her death, Mother Teresa’s life and works inspire people and will likely continue to inspire generations more.
Mother Teresa quotes:
“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.”
“Peace begins with a smile.”
“We fear the future because we are wasting today.”
“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
“Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it.”
“True love is love that causes us pain, that hurts, and yet brings us joy. That is why we must pray to God and ask Him to give us the courage to love.”
“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.”
“Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.”
