Mother Teresa: Nobel Peace Prize Speech
Learn English with Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Mother Teresa held her Acceptance Speech on 10 December 1979, in the Aula of the University of Oslo, Norway. Mother Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu, honoured in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary. She was born in Skopje, then part of the Kosovo Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire. In this speech, she also quotes: “I am sure in the families and many of our homes, maybe we are not hungry for a piece of bread, but maybe there is somebody there in the family who is unwanted, unloved, uncared, forgotten, there isn’t love. Love begins at home. And love to be true has to hurt.” Watch with big English.
