Mother Teresa was born as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu to an Albanian family in 1910 in Skopje. She founded the Missionaries of Charity in India, where she ministered over 40 years.
In 1979, she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work and, following her death in 1997, was beatified – a step before being canonized as a saint, and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
Part of Mother Teresa’s remains will be given to Macedonia for Mother Teresa’s commemorative House being built in Macedonia’s Capital.
Gautam Gupta has more on the story.
