Home Blogs and Articles Mother Teresa Declared A Saint, Respect!

In an announcement, earlier this year, Pope Francis said that Mother Teresa would be declared a saint.
The date decided was September 4.

The ceremony took place at the Vatican City.

Thousands of pilgrims were there to attend the ceremony at St Peter’s Square for the Mass and canonization.
Where a 12-member central delegation led by Sushma Swaraj, two state government-level delegations from Delhi and West Bengal were also present.

Cardinal Angelo Amato read a brief biography of Mother Teresa’s work.
Post that, he asked the Pope to canonise her in the name of the Church.

Pope Francis responded:
“After due deliberation and frequent prayers for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother bishops, we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a saint and we enrol her among the saints, decreeing that she is to be venerated as such by the whole Church.”

A pizza lunch was served to the pilgrims by 250 nuns and priests.

One pilgrim, Charlotte Samba told the press:
“Her heart, she gave it to the world. Mercy, forgiveness, good works. It is the heart of a mother for the poor.”

No wonder, why a lady with just the possessions of a bucket and two saris would not be loved by all.
I wish that her contributions and grace of dignity would remain alive among the next generations as well.
