Mother Teresa Relic Charm Bracelet
Mother Teresa was an Albanian Roman Catholic nun who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata (Calcutta), India in 1950. For over forty years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries.
By the 1970s she had become internationally famed as a humanitarian and advocate for the poor and helpless, due in part to a documentary, and book, Something Beautiful for God by Malcom Muggeridge. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 for her humanitarian work. Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity continued to expand, and at the time of her death it was operating 610 missions in 123 countries, including hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis, soup kitchens, children's and family counseling programs, orphanages, and schools.
Following her death she was beatified by Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.*
She is a well-recognized Spiritual woman that has made an impact on by her spirituality and sacrifices she made by helping the poorest and sick. She is a great example of the love for Our Lord .
I created this beautiful bracelet to give honor to a wonderful extraordinary woman. I used small porcelain vases and added a flower to each one. I also used other Patron Saints Medals; Sacred Heart of Mary, St. Therese, Miraculous Medal, which Mother Teresa was very deboutly to, Divine Mercy.
