St. Teresa of Calcutta (1910 - 1997) or Mother Teresa was an Albanian nun who went to India to teach the children there. She saw many poor and sick people on the streets there. Feeling Jesus calling her to help them, she started an order called the Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa loved the poor people because she saw Jesus in them. Today, her nuns reach out to needy families all over the world. Her feast day is on 5 September.
