Her father Nikola was a contractor, her mother Dranafile took care of the home, and was deeply rooted in her faith(Mother Teresa 1910-1997, 98). Anges was the youngest of three; her sister Age, and her brother Lamar. (Mother Teresa 1910-1997, 99) She didn’t have a normal childhood. By the time Anges was 9 her father passed leaving them with nothing but their possessions(Mother Teresa 1910-1997, 99). This tragedy in her life seemed to only strengthened her and her family’s faith helping her be so involved with the church.
Agnes often helped her mother deliver parcels of food and money to the poor and prayed with the whole family every evening. The family’s life changed dramatically after their father’s death, when Agnes was 9. Although now poor themselves, they continued to help those less fortunate. Christianity became increasingly important in Agnes’ life. From the age of 12, she was aware of a desire to devote her life to God.
Mother Theresa said, "The whole... ... middle of paper ... ...h all you meet. Remember, Works of love are works of peace." (Collopy 14). By valuing every human being, by finding Jesus even in the poorest of the poor, Mother Teresa was a hero because she gave peacemaking love to all she met, and taught others to do likewise by her example.

To become a nun, and the lady known as Mother Teresa, Agnes had to take the last vows of obedience, chastity and poverty to follow the ways which Jesus was, and in the end the influence which had on Agnes's, or Mother Teresa's life. To become a nun, a woman must obey God's will, no matter what has been asked. Mother Teresa took this vow seriously, she obeyed God's will in every little thing she did, and was a major influence on her life. In obeying God's will, Mother Teresa worked wonders in the world which she lived. Mother Teresa build many homes for the sick, dying and unfortunate, and many schools as well for the uneducated.
From personal understanding and examination of Dorothy Day’s life, I think that she wanted to show people how religion can change their lives and display a new spiritual sensation. At the university Dorothy Day rejected religion and “began to take God’s name in vain.” (Day, 42) Dorothy was unhappy and she expressed her feelings by pushing away religion. Until the birth of a child, Dorothy consciously doubted religion, however she constantly prayed and unconsciously believed in God. When Dorothy found out about her pregnancy, she started praying and going to mass every Sunday. She started praying because she became happy and she wanted to thank the God.
She dedicated her life serving the poor. She loved the unloved, cared for the un-cared, helped the dying, the cripple, and the mentally ill. She served everyone with her love and the love of God. She touched the hearts of those who doubted her because of her love and commitment to God. Mother Teresa lived an extraordinary life. Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, later named Mother Teresa, was born on August 26, 1910 in Skopje, Yugoslavia.
The People’s Princess “I knew what my job was; it was to go out and meet the people and love them.” These words were spoken by a woman who honestly cared about what people were going through and understood their suffering: Princess Diana. Even when she was going through the most terrible moments in her life, she was strong, positive and always willing to help others. She helped the poor, people with diseases, and children in need. Princess Diana didn’t act like royalty and she dedicated hundreds of hours to helping adults and children who were deprived of love and affection. She changed people’s minds and perspectives about the victims of horrid sicknesses and the less fortunate.
