“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
- Mother Teresa
Mother Teresa (1910 – 1997) was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, was Albanian with Indian citizenship. In 1950 she founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India, ministering to the sick, poor, orphaned and dying for the next 45 years. She also guided the expansion of the Missionaries of Charity. Following her death she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. (Funnily enough, her middle name, Gonxha, means “rosebud" in Albanian).
