Mother Teresa was one of the most remarkable people of the 20th century, an inspiring woman who spent a lifetime helping the poor and afflicted, a complex woman who harbored a secret spiritual anguish, a saintly woman who is today well along the road to being canonized as a saint. Now, to mark the centenary of her birth in 1910, the editors of TIME bring you the story of her life in stirring words and pictures, with special contributors including Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, who heads the Vatican effort to establish Teresa’s eligibility for sainthood.
It was an extraordinary life. Teresa was just 18 when she bid farewell to her Albanian family to become a Roman Catholic nun who would work in India. For most of the next two decades she served devotedly as a Catholic school teacher in Calcutta. But her world changed forever on a train trip in 1946. She experienced a vision of Jesus Christ, who commanded her to embark on a personal ministry to help the poorest of the poor.
For the next 50 years Mother Teresa and her new order, the Missionaries of Charity, would carry out that command, bringing aid to the dying and destitute all around the world. Along the way she won the Nobel Peace Prize, the friendship of President Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul II, and Princess Diana, and the admiration of millions of people of all faiths. Yet for most of that time she also suffered a relentless spiritual crisis that she shared with only a few. This is her surprising and captivating story.
