Transcript A Tribute to Mother Teresa THE SAINT OF THE GUTTERS Mother Teresa, winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, died Sept. 5 in her convent in India after suffering a massive heart attack. She was 87. The diminutive Albanian was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910 in Skopje, Yugoslavia. At the age of 18 she decided to serve the poor and joined the Sisters of Loreto in 1928. She took the name of Teresa after St. Teresa of Avila, patroness of the Missionaries. Mother Teresa left behind a very successful Roman Catholic order of sisters. She believed no one was too wretched to deserve dignity, especially in dying. Mother Teresa went where others feared to go and never hesitated to kiss the hands of India's lepers or pick maggots from the wounds of people found lying in the streets. She also helped change the attitudes towards AIDS by hugging patients dying of the disease. The turning point in her life was in 1948, when she came across a half-dead woman lying in front of a Calcutta hospital. She stayed with the woman until she died. From that point on, she dedicated the majority of her life to helping the poorest of the poor in India, gaining the name "Saint of the Gutters." In 1952, she founded the Nirmal Hirday Home for the Dying where sisters cared for the dying. Within 10 years she was known as "the Saint of Calcutta." As she walked through the crowded streets, people would bend to touch her feet, a sign of respect in the Hindu country. . Today, her order includes nearly 600 clinics, orphanages, soup kitchens, maternity homes, refugee centers and homes for the poor, sick and dying in more than 100 countries worldwide. University of Houston students acknowledged that the nun will be missed. "Mother Teresa was one of the most noble and honorable women in this country, we will all miss her and all she has done," said freshman pre-med major Vinu C.Varghese. Matthew Bussa, freshman chemical engineering major, thought the closeness in the deaths of Mother Theresa and of Princess Diana was especially tragic. "It is a shame that first we lose one of the most loved women in the world, Princess Diana, but then a week later to lose Mother Teresa is just a shame. The world has lost two great loving women," he said. "Mother Teresa was one of the most noble and honorable women in this country." Vinu C.Varghese The Saint Of The Gutters
