Saint Story: St. John Paul II and St. Mother Teresa (27:23)
Saint John Paul II was born in May 1920 in Poland. He lost all of his family quite early in life, but was known well for how he loved the people around him. St. John Paul II became pope in 1978. He was an incredible writer, leader, and a man of great prayer. He died in 2005.
Saint Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Macedonia. In 1928, she joined the Sisters of Loreto and was sent to Calcutta, India to teach young girls. For twenty years, she served in this way. In 1946, Mother Teresa received the call to serve the poor. She eventually founded the Missionaries of Charity. Mother Teresa died in 1997.
