A Journalist Reveals is celebrating Mother’s Week, the week post Mother’s Day. Today, we will talk about Mother Teresa.
Saint Teresa of Calcutta is a canonized saint belonging to the Roman Catholic Church. Though she was from North Macedonia, she lived most of her life caring for the poor and sick people in India.
She launched the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 and ran it in 133 countries till 2012. The missionaries consist of more than 4500 nuns. The Roman Catholic Religious Congregation manages homes to take care of HIV/Aids, tuberculosis and leprosy patients.
They also organize soup kitchens, dispensaries, children’s and family counseling programs, mobile clinics, orphanages and schools. The nuns take the oath of chastity, obedience and poverty and most importantly “wholehearted free service to the poorest of poor.”
Mother Teresa is the idol of several mothers including mine. She took care of every needy person like their own mother, selflessly. She is the role model of every good mother.
