When I wash the leper's wounds I feel I am nursing the Lord Himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?" — Saint Mother Teresa. Mother Teresa (1910-1997) was beloved the world over for her tireless work to serve millions of the world's poor, outcast, ill, and dying. Born Agnes Gonxha Bojahiu, in Macedonia, she became a nun and took the name of Sister Mary Teresa at the age of eighteen. In the 1930s, she first traveled to India, which became her home. In the following years, through her Missionaries of Charity, she established an international network of clinics, orphanages, and other institutions devoted to helping the poor. In 2006, she was canonized by Pope Francis at a mass attended by tens of thousands. "Mother Teresa, Her Essential Wisdom" collects hundreds of quotations from this determined and inspirational woman. In her half-century of public life, she visited and spoke in more than one hundred countries about the subjects closest to her heart. In simple but profound words gathered here, Mother Teresa reflects on the meaning of love, the importance of charity, the need for prayer, the value of family, and the absolute dignity of every human being. Biography, religion.
