Gus Lloyd of Seize The Day of The Catholic Channel, examines the foundress of the Missionaries of Charity and charismatic Catholic matriarch's life growing up in Macedonia to her calling to the Loreto Sister to the 'call within the call,' which led her to form the religious order that served the poorest of the poor. Her immense love for the poor led to her unintentional leap to the world's stage, and, after winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979, Mother Teresa became the face of the Catholic Church to many in the next two decades. This original Catholic Channel documentary traces the entire life of this tireless servant of God who will be canonized a saint by Pope Francis on September 4th.
