    Mother Teresa

    Religious life

    Üsküp, Kosovo Vilayet, Ottoman Empire (present-day Skopje, North Macedonia)
    Wednesday Aug 15, 1928

    Teresa was in her early years when she was fascinated by stories of the lives of missionaries and their service in Bengal; by age 12, she was convinced that she should commit herself to religious life. Her resolve strengthened on 15 August 1928 as she prayed at the shrine of the Black Madonna of Vitina-Letnice, where she often went on pilgrimages.
