mother teresa 特蕾莎修女的一生


“By blood, I am Albanian. By citizenship, an Indian. By faith, I am a Catholic nun. As to my calling, I belong to the world. As to my heart, I belong entirely to the Heart of Jesus.” --- Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa was born into an Albanian family on August 26, 1910.. At the age of twelve, she felt strongly the call of God. She knew she had to be a missionary to spread the love of Christ. At the age of eighteen she left her parental home in Skopje and joined the Sisters of Loreto, an Irish community of nuns with missions in India. After a few months' training in Dublin she was sent to India, where on May 24, 1931, she took her initial vows as a nun.

From 1931 to 1948 Mother Teresa taught at St. Mary's High School in Calcutta, but the suffering and poverty she glimpsed outside the convent walls made such a deep impression on her that in 1948 she received permission from her superiors to leave the convent school and devote herself to working among the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta. Although she had no funds, she depended on Divine Providence, and started an open-air school for slum children. Soon she was joined by voluntary helpers, and financial support was also forthcoming. This made it possible for her to extend the scope of her work.

On October 7, 1950, Mother Teresa received permission from the Holy See to start her own order, "The Missionaries of Charity", whose primary task was to love and care for those persons nobody was prepared to look after. In 1965 the Society became an International Religious Family by a decree of Pope Paul VI.

Mother Teresa's work has been recognized and acclaimed throughout the world and she has received a number of awards and distinctions, the most extraodinary one ---the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979… She refused the conventional ceremonial banquet given to laureates, and asked that the $192,000 funds be given to the poor in India.

in her Nobel Lecture, she said: "Around the world, not only in the poor countries, but I found the poverty of the West so much more difficult to remove. When I pick up a person from the street, hungry, I give him a plate of rice, a piece of bread, I have satisfied. I have removed that hunger. But a person that is shut out, that feels unwanted, unloved, terrified, the person that has been thrown out from society—that poverty is so hurtable [sic] and so much, and I find that very difficult.

Privately, Mother Teresa experienced doubts and struggles over her religious beliefs which lasted nearly 50 years until the end of her life, during which "she felt no presence of God whatsoever", "neither in her heart or in the eucharist" as put by her postAulator Rev. Brian Kolodiejchuk.[86] Mother Teresa expressed grave doubts about God's existence and pain over her lack of faith:

Where is my faith? Even deep down ... there is nothing but emptiness and darkness ... If there be God—please forgive me. When I try to raise my thoughts to Heaven, there is such convicting emptiness that those very thoughts return like sharp knives and hurt my very soul ... How painful is this unknown pain—I have no Faith. Repulsed, empty, no faith, no love, no zeal, ... What do I labor for? If there be no God, there can be no soul. If there be no soul then, Jesus, You also are not true.[87]

Although some people criticized her for crisis of beliefs …But she dedicated all her life into bringing poor and helpless people warmth and hope… does not such an unselfish lady deserve our respect??

People are often unreasonable,illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind,people may accuse you of selfish,ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. If you are successful,you will win some false friends And some true enemies; Succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank,people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, Someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness,they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today,people will often forget tomorrow; Be good anyway. Give the world the best you have, And it may never be enough; Give the world the best you have anyway. You see,in the final analysis,it is between you and God; It is never between you and them anyway.

She died on September 5th ,1997 But she lives in our heart forever….
