Biography about Mother Teresa: “The Fruit Of Love Is Service”

When I read biography about Mother Teresa was a saintly person. I came to know about her contributions to society and humanity were astounding. She dedicated her entire life to helping those who were impoverished in India.

I was numbed when I read the biography about Mother Teresa (b.26 August 1910), who had devoted her entire life to orphans, breaking all religious barriers.

She successfully coped with all situations of the poorest of the poor. Her journey had started from Kosovo Vilayet (A New York Times’s article) and ended in Calcutta (now Kolkata). Being a part of the Albanian family (Get to know the complete about who are Albanian) she never races anybody by religions nor by colours.

A short biography about Mother Teresa

Her father was a politician by profession, but Mother Teresa had chosen different ways of serving people, those innocents, poor, and deceased were calling her to India and finally, she found her the last place of living on the earth. She often called nuns and missionary mothers. Her house was the only home of leper, beggar, the blind, the aged, and the disabled colony of hopeful children.

Yesterday is gone and tomorrow has not yet come; we must live each day as if it were our last so that when God calls us we already, and prepared, to die with a clean heart. ㅡ Mother Teresa. Many leaders still say that Mother Teresa was the greatest humanitarian of the 20th century in the world. Therefore, a compassionate and holy hearted woman by chance had got to this planet and those poorest of the poor.

She brought many lives into existence and provided shelters to thousands of orphans, gave food and clothes to incapable ㅡ humans, and hence she called Saint Mother Teresa. She stayed in the hospitals in sleepless nights, watched many giving births, dying when it was out of her reach. Her real name was Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu. The characteristics of Mother Teresa had come from her mother, Drana Bojaxhiu. There is a legendary story behind becoming Mother Teresa. Her mother after her father’s death decided to serve people, and it was declared to the front of poor when Drana invited the city’s destitute to share a meal together and had said,

My child never eats a single mouthful unless you are sharing it with others.

Drana Bojaxhiu

Within no time a question hit her mother from her daughter stating who are these people and after listening to her mother Agnes got impressed. She heard,

Some of them are our relations but all of them are our people.

Drana Bojaxhiu

The line had given Agnes a spark, inspired her tremendously, and found the biggest learning point looking at people. She started following her mother right from that time. She had done her education in history, geography and let herself completely deep inside through girl’s poverty incorporating into her education.

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centred; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough; Give the world best the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and them anyway. Her promising approach toward life and how she used to take it was purely how her heart built of one of her poems shows. The Extraordinary human beings only could think that way. This poetry could take our life to the next level of humanitarian and spread the never-ending love from one heart to another. What is the real meaning of life? Mother Teresa tells the world through this poem? Upon reading, it leaves us thinking more clearly about what life is and how to accept it.

Poem by Mother Teresa

God is.
God is love.
God is everywhere.
God is the Author of life.
God is a loving Father.
God is a merciful Father.
God is all-powerful, and He can take care of us.
God is love and God loves you and loves me.
God is joy.
God is pure Himself.
God is with us.
God is in love with us.
God is in your heart.
God is faithful.
God is love, God is joy, God is light,
God is the truth.
God is thoughtful.
God is so good to us.

In an interview, Mother Teresa was once asked, can you sum up what love really is?” She promptly replied:

“Love is giving. God loved the world so much that He gave His Son. Jesus loved the world so much, loved you, loved me so much that He gave His life. And He wants us to love as He loved. And so now we have also to give until it hurts. True love is giving and giving until it hurts.
