Mother Teresa

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 25 September 1928 and took the name of Teresa on 24 May 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 1 December 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 5 September 1997 9:30 PM Calcutta. Upon her death many of her followers wanted her to be beatified and canonized before the required waiting period.

Canonized by Pope Francis on 4 September 2016.

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.

Mother Teresa's date of birth is disputed: So unconcerned was she about accuracy in relation to the chronicling of her own life, and so disinclined actually to read anything written about her, that for many years and in a succession of books her birth date was erroneously recorded as 27 August 1910. It even appeared in the Indian Loreto Entrance Book as her date of birth. In fact, as she confided to her friend, co-worker and American author, Eileen Egan, that was the date on which she was christened Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. The date which marked the beginning of her Christian life was undoubtedly the more important to Mother Teresa, but she was none the less actually born in Skopje, Serbia, on the previous day."
