Mother Teresa

Mother Teresa (here by Constant Concepts) is the modern exemplar of love for the needy. Born in Albania, she joined the Sisters of Loreto when she was 18. She was sent to India as a missionary, where she was moved by the extreme poverty she found in Calcutta, where she founded the Missionaries of Calcutta. She spent the rest of her life (dying in 1997) ministering to and advocating for the poorest of the poor. She said that "In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love."
