PHOTOS: 100th Anniversary Mother Teresa - One of the Greatest Saints Life in Pictures

This is a special edition post to mark the 100th Anniversary of one of the greatest saints to walk on this planet.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, also known as Mother Teresa. Her ministry to the "poorest of the poor," as she would call them, was well known during her life. Her ministry to the doubtful, the confused, the seeker, the one in darkness, the one who feels distant from God began after her death, with the publication of Come Be My Light, which detailed her decades-long spiritual darkness, feelings of distance from God, which lasted until her death.

Her having accomplished so much on earth in near-darkness, without the benefit of the fruits of prayer that were enjoyed by almost all the saints, places her, in my opinion, among the very greatest of saints in the church. For many of the saints did what she did -- founded a religious order, served the poor, led a life of heroic virtue. - Rev. James Martin, S.J.Catholic priest and author of 'The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything'
