Pope John Paull II beatified Mother Teresa of Calcutta, founder of the Missionaries of charity, on October 19, 2003. The Church recognized her as Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and acknowledged that she has attained the blessedness of heaven. The healing of an Indian woman that occurred on the first anniversary of Mother Teresa’s death was recognized by the Pope in 2002 as the miracle required for beatification.
Mother Teresa entered the Loreto Convent in Rathfarnam, Ireland in 1928. She was sent to India in 1929 and took her final vows there in 1937. After 15 years of teaching history and geography, Mother Teresa “heard the call to give up all and follow Christ into the slums to serve him among the poorest of the poor.” In 1948, after receiving permission from the Pope, Mother Teresa left her community to live as an independent nun. As she began this new chapter, Mother Teresa set aside the habit she had worn as a Loreto sister and opted to wear the ordinary dress of an Indian woman: a plain white sari and sandles. In addition to the never-ending stream of human needs in the poor she met ,Mother Teresa found more help than she ever imagined. While young women, who would later become the core of Mother Teresa’s order, came to volunteer their services, others came forward to offer food, clothing, shelter, medical supplies, and money. In 1950, Mother Teresa founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of Charity. Nourished by the faith, true compassion, and the tireless commitment of mother Teresa, the Missionaries of Charity now number 4,000 sisters, and nearly 600 foundations in 123 countries.

The Prayer to Mother Teresa
God, our loving Father, You have given us a beautiful example of love in action through Your daughter, Mother Teresa.
In her life she showed us how to follow Jesus by loving and serving others. She joyfully fed the hungry, rallied for the poor and unwanted, cared for the sick and dying, and sheltered the homeless.
May we imitate her love and generosity by reaching out to Your needy ones.
Thank You for the gift of Mother Teresa.
May she now rest in Your arms eternally.
