Born in what is now Macedonia, a nun and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Through her service of universal love as a nun and missionary, she devoted her life to the poor and sick. She decided to be a nun on 9/25/1928 and took the name of Teresa on 5/24/1931.

(She said her divine call to work among the poor had come in 1946 and she opened her first Calcutta slum school in 1949.)

Petite and of short body structure, she was plagued with heart problems and received a pacemaker 12/01/1989. (She was treated in California for bacterial pneumonia and heart disease and was hospitalized again in November 1996. She suffered several heart failures and received surgery to unblock two coronary arteries.)

In early 1997 she was replaced by sister Nirmala, 63, as head of the Missionaries of Charity, stepping down due to poor health.

Mother Teresa died 9/05/1997 9:30 PM Calcutta. Upon her death many of her followers wanted her to be beatified and canonized before the required waiting period.

Source Notes

Marcello Borges quotes the photo-bio "Faith and Compassion, The Life and Works of Mother Teresa," in Portuguese by Raghu Rai and Navin Chawle, Element Books. Chawle is a civil servant in India and had close contact with the nun. On p.22, "Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was born 26 August 1910 in Skopje. The date is often given as August 27, which is the date she was baptized."

Astrolog quotes Astrol Auskunfsbogen for August 27, 1910, 2:25 PM MET. Helen Adams Garret gives August 26 (with 4:58 AM MET, no source) in the ISAR Emailleter Vol.41.

As Yugoslovia was on the Julian calendar, the question remains of whether the date is OS or NS.
