Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun who served the poorest of the poor in India. She dreamed that there would no longer be any poor in the world.
Some of her biggest obstacles were not having enough money to carry out her intentions. Another obstacle was her health.
Mother Teresa's hobbies were caring for the poor and looking after people. As a child she loved reading about the lives of the saints.
There is no recorded information of Mother Teresa having a favorite color, the saris that she chose to model her habit on are white with a blue stripe, which is probably for t…he Blessed Virgin Mary, as blue is the color used for her. Blue to symbolise peace and understanding on an international level.

She likes every animal.
Love God that she was a good woman, followed gods word and wanted to help people for the greater good of the planet
A: Mother Teresa began her career as a teacher, and had no medical qualifications. In fact one of her failings is that she simply did not understand basic health car…e. She provided hospices that allowed poor people to die with dignity, but many of her patients could have been cured with basic medical care and low cost medications, allowing them to return to their families. In fact, she even refused the low-cost medication that could have eased suffering for those in acute pain, believing that it was God's will that they suffer. A great many of her patients were Hindus, and her greatest wish was that they be baptised as Christians before dying. Answer: Mother Teresa had no qualifications in heath care or social work. However, she spoke five languages and was a really great communicator and fundraiser. The success of her missions was based on Mother Teresa's ability to keep donations coming in. Catholic Answer: She began her missionary work with the poor in 1948 and spent a few months in Patna to receive a basic medical training in the Holy Family Hospital and then ventured out into the slums. Initially she started a school in Motijhil (Calcutta) but soon she started tending to the needs of the destitute and starving. Her main objective in those early years was to provide a hospice where those left to die in the gutters could be brought where they could be cared for in their final hours surrounded by people who cared about them. It was not a medical facility and was never claimed to be as Mother Teresa had no one on her staff who could provide more than basic care. Her first years were fraught with difficulties. She had no income and had to resort to begging for food and supplies. It was not until 1969 when the documentary Something Beautiful for God, was filmed and released by Malcolm Muggeridge and his 1971 book of the same title that donations started pouring in from around the world. As money came in, Mother Teresa was able to expand her work and provide more than rudimentary care. See Discussion for more information on Mother Teresa's work and the difficulties she experienced.
The inscription on her tombstone reads "Love one another, as I have loved you"
A: Mother Teresa was a really great communicator who could bring in vast sums in donations for the work she reported being done in Calcutta. The Catholic Church soon… realised the potential and swung its publicity resources behind building her reputation and fame, adding to her world-wide appeal. Another strength was her dedication to the propagation of the Catholic faith, in spite of expressing personal doubts as to whether God exists.
Its actually called the 'Missionaries Of Charity'
Mother Teresa entered the Sisters of Loreto at a very young age and spent her life doing the Will of God - which was her ONLY interest. She did not have time nor energy for "h…obbies". The answer is not obvious to modern people as they did not understand Mother Theresa (as of 2013, she is Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, with another miracle, she will be St. Teresa of Calcutta) because they do not understand real Christianity. Blessed Theresa of Calcutta, a Catholic sister who entered the Sisters of Loretto in Ireland to become a teaching sister, was sent to India to teach. Later, moved with compassion, and the love of God, she received a "call" from God to help the poorest of the poor. The rest of her life was spent in "darkness" which I discuss below. . Modern people, and most people who call themselves Christians, think that going to Church on Sunday, saying some things, and being nice to people is what it is all about. They are completely missing the mark. Those kind of things are just the tip of the iceberg. Mother Teresa helped others by loving God above all things, putting Him first in her life, and doing His Will no matter how painful it was for her, and it was very painful. . Mother spent most of her life in a dark night with no real feeling or personal knowledge of God. This is very common with the founders of religious orders, they are strong enough in their faith to make their way through life totally depend on Faith, Hope, and Charity: the three cardinal virtues bestowed on us in Baptism. She sacrificed herself completely for God, and was called a saint and a prophet for it. . Mother Theresa helped others the way we are all called to help others, by getting up in the morning, and taking some time to give to God first. She spend an hour in Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, went to Holy Mass, received Our Blessed Lord in the Eucharist, and went to confession frequently, and regularly. And, then, when she had done these things, she went out and lived her faith by seeing her God in every individual in front of her, especially the poor, the sick, the aged, and the abandoned. She served God by serving Him in them - which is nothing more nor less than she lived the Gospel with every breath in her body. . Mother Teresa showed compassion for those who were less fortunate than she was. She gave them food, lifted their spirits, and helped them survive. She is and was considered a hero to many people. After her death, she was put on the short list for canonization, and in 2012 I believe she has already had one miracle attributed to her, and has been beatified. Of course, she loved children. . The Church often says that the only real way to help people, the way to become a good spouse, parent, teacher, or whatever, is to become a saint. Mother Teresa believed and lived this. She helped the poor by becoming a saint. . The various ways that she accomplished that was that she always did the Will of God even when she didn't feel as if God was there or approving of her. She cared for the poorest of the poor. She established hospices and hospitals for the sick and dying, she started in Calcutta as she started a new religious order, the Missionaries of Charity, which spread throughout the world. Today the Order still cares for the poorest of the poor, the sick and dying. Mother Theresa and her sisters went out into the streets and picked up the dying homeless to bring them to her hospice. They clean them, feed them, pray with them, and serve them so that they spend their last days or hours in dignity. She and her Order treat those dying of AIDS, the lepers, the untouchables, those whom nobody else will love and care for. She saw Our Blessed Lord in everyone of them, in disguise, pleading for our help and love. She treated them as she would treat Our Blessed Lord, Himself.
