A photo-illustrated press release flyer for The Words of Peace: Selections from the Speeches of the Winners of the Nobel Peace Prize (1995), which reads, in part: "Mother Teresa, Lech Walesa, Elie Wiesel*, Anwar el-Sadat, and Menachem Begin are among the 47 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates whose words are excerpted in THE WORDS OF PEACE—Selections from the speeches of the Winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. [signed] M Teresa MC." Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Thirty years prior, the Albanian nun had left her teaching post at a Roman Catholic school in Calcutta to devote her life to working among the poorest in the slums. In 2016, she was canonized by Pope Francis as Saint Teresa of Calcutta.
