Wednesday marks the 105th birth anniversary of Blessed Mother Teresa, founder of the Catholic congregation 'Missionaries of Charity'.
In May, Syro Malabar Church spokesperson Paul Thelekat announced that the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will officially be declared a saint in September 2016.
It was on 19 October, 2003, that Pope John Paul-II announced her as "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta".
Born in Albania on 26 August, 1910, as Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, she joined as a missionary with the Sisters of Loreto when she was 18. In 1929, Mother Teresa arrived in India, where she began her charity work.
Mother Teresa received the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and passed away on 5 September, 1997.
Check out some notable quotes by Mother Teresa below:
Peace begins with a smile.
Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
