Mother Teresa of Kolkata was a Roman Catholic nun who through sheer force of personality and belief had an enormous impact on the care of the poor, the sick and the dying that resulted in her winning the Nobel prize in 1979. Through her transcendental spirituality she amassed a worldwide constituency devoted to her aims, and there are now some seven hundred any forty homes around the world dedicated to her causes. This authorized pictorial history is a tribute to Mother Teresa's extraordinary achievements and had been compiled by her closest associate as a tribute for the first anniversary of her death. Using photographs from around the world, the majority of which has never been published before, it includes pictures of her as a young girl in Albania, addressing the US Senate, the magnificent pomp of her Indian State funeral, her simple tomb and the beatification. But the major part of the book follows the daily round of the sisters and focuses on the charismatic figure of Mother Teresa.
