Mother Teresa, baptized this day in 1910 in Albania, was the founder of the Order of the Missionaries of Charity—a Roman Catholic congregation of women dedicated to the poor, particularly to the destitute of Calcutta (Kolkata), India. She was the recipient of the 1979 Nobel Prize for Peace. She died in 1997 and was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2003.
