Mother Teresa (1910-1997) founded the Missionaries of Charity in 1950 and was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. She spent most of her life caring for abandoned children, mentally ill and handicapped individuals, lepers, the indigent, and the dying. With gentleness and humility, she and her co-workers demonstrated how the compassionate spirit of Jesus was meant to burn brightly against the staggering dimensions of pain, poverty, and human misery in the world.

This card deck comes with a built-in frame for displaying the quotations or one of the nine duotone photographs of Mother Teresa printed on the back of the cards. The deck is organized into the following categories: Joy, Silence, Generosity, Faith, Sacrifice, Poverty, Prayer, and Love. A portion of the publisher's proceeds from this project will aid the Missionaries of Charity. New World Library has also released two collections of stories and quotations about Mother Teresa: Mother Teresa: In the Heart of the World and Mother Teresa: No Greater Love.
