Mohther Teresa with matching stamp

Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910 – 1997)

Mother Teresa was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Skopje, Macedonia. Her family was of Albanian descent. 

From 1931 to 1948 Mother Teresa taught at St. Mary's High School in Calcutta, but the suffering and poverty she glimpsed outside the convent walls made such a deep impression on her that in 1948 she received permission from her superiors to leave the convent school and devote herself to working among the poorest of the poor in the slums of Calcutta.
