Refusal of the call
The Beginning of the Adventure
I want lead a religious life and have a religious vocation.
Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (later Mother Teresa) is a Albanian women born in the city of Skopje or now called Republic of Macedonia. She has two older siblings, a older sister named Aga and a older brother named Lazar.
Road of Trial
I want to pursue a religious vocation.
Agnes father died and his business partner took everything for himself leaving no source of income for her family.
The Experience with Unconditional Love
Agnes decided that she wanted to have religious life and job. It did not involve having a vision from god.
The Ultimate Boon
Agnes mom did not consent to it right away and disapproved of it at first, spending all day and night in her room before deciding and letting her go. She later went on a trip with the sisters of Loreto to an exotic land that took 5 weeks and the seas were rough. On May 24, 1931, she took her first vows becoming sister Teresa in honor of the Saint Therese of Lisieux.
I won't allow you go and live a religious life.
A few years later Agnes was though to be a very dedicated and hardworking when it came to praying and studying. Teaching geography and history to students also even sometimes telling them about her life in Skopje which is now the Republic of Macedonia.

In May 1937, Agnes took her final vows for the last time becoming Mother Teresa. She would later be called Mother Teresa for her entire life.
