Mother Teresa: A Biography

“Our aim is to quench the infinite thirst of Jesus Christ for love by the profession of the evangelical counsels and by wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor…we are called the Missionaries of Charity.”

Mother Teresa was an embodiment of love, kindness and selfless service. She spent her life tending to the poor, sick and the abandoned. To those who were left on the streets to die while the world watched in silence and indifference, she became the caregiver. What the world witnessed was a divine being, full of compassion, doing God’s will on earth. Believing that there is God in every human being, she said, “I see God in every human being. When I wash the leper’s wounds, I feel I am nursing the Lord himself. Is it not a beautiful experience?” Mother Teresa maintained that it is preferable to make mistakes in kindness than work miracles in unkindness.

Most of her biographies are completely reverential. The cult of celebrity will probably fail to explain the hold she continues to exercise on the conscience of the world even today. Mother Teresa neither sought nor expected any recognition; her missionary work was later than life.

This biography is a humble attempt to get to know Mother Teresa, whose radiance lit the world and draw inspiration from her life. As we traverse this journey together, let us hope that we will be dragged out of the darkness of ignorance and indifference into a bright world with peace, love, sharing and happiness.
