Mother Teresa was born at the Ottoman Empire in the Republic of Macedonia. She was depicted as a heroic figure due to her missionary works. She founded a charity organization under the Romanian religious congregation.
Mother Teresa’s dedication is a skill and quality that I admire a lot. Teresa was an admirable figure by many in the society (Cavallaro, 2018). She was heavily criticized and praised for works in opposing abortion hence becoming a subject to both books and films. Mother Teresa became the hope of the poor in the society, the crippled, the homeless, the blind, the aged, refugees, victims of famine and floods. During her days Teresa out- pulled many other volunteers with a wide margin of rankings and became the first in all demographic categories. Her humility and dedication are commemorated globally through naming streets, building, and monuments.
She was devoted to attracting donation through hospices to help the homeless children, especially in India. She traveled internationally to serve the poorest despite a lot of critics from her rivals. Mother remained Teresa committed to spreading love and joy to the abandoned, the destitute, the unemployed and the terminally ill. Her commitment to eliminate poverty and suffering earned her the Nobel peace prize. Despite experiencing financial difficulties, she continued to pursue the great good of the people by begging for food and supplies (Cavallaro, 2018). Teresa also expanded her humanitarian efforts to communists’ nations which had declined the charity hospices. At the height of the temporary seize fire between Israel and the Palestinians. Teresa devoted herself to ensure that the 37 kids trapped in the frontline were evacuated and given medical attention.
Mother Teresa did such great work for the poor that she received a Nobel Peace Prize in 1971. Pope Paul VI honored Mother Teresa by awarding her the first Pope John XXIII Peace Prize. The following year the government of India presented her with the Jawaharial Nehru Award for the International Understanding. In 1971, she received her greatest award, the Nobel Peace Prize. Mother Teresa accepted all of these awards on behalf of the poor, suing any money that accompanied them to fund her centers. By 1990 over 3,000 nuns belonged to the running centers in 25 countries. Obviously, Mother Teresa’s mission to help the poor were a tremendous success.
She was a person that let nothing stand in her way. Thus proving to everyone to make a difference. She is a great philosopher of the world. Touching many people in her life time and bringing dignity to the poor. “God made a wealthy enough to feed and clothe everyone.” (Mother Teresa). She brought her love of God to the world and presented it to everyone never doubting her faith and mission in her life. I think that everyone could learn from her example, and make a difference in this world. There are a lot of great people in this world and I think she proves that regardless of religious affiliation we can all join together for a common cause. To help anyone in need. “There is no greater sickness in the world today than the lack of love.” (Mother Teresa)
