We celebrate Mother Theresa's life in pictures as she becomes a modern day saint.

A Modern Day Saint

Mother Theresa has been canonised by the Catholic church.

Born Agnes Gonxhe Bojaxhiu on August 26, 1910, Mother Theresa relocated to India as a sister of the Loreto order in 1929.

It was here that Mother Theresa was inspired to begin caring for what she called, “the poorest of the poor” providing care and support for those who society had shunned to the sidelines.

In 1955 she opened the Children’s Home of the Immaculate Heart to safely house the large number of abandoned children that were being treated by her charity.

In 1979 she won the Nobel Peace Prize for her outstanding work.

Mother Theresa’s sainthood was announced on the eve of the 19th anniversary of her death.
