Mother Teresa declared a saint by Pope Francis

Post by Kelsey♥Skittles on Sun Sep 04, 2016 4:30 pm

To a great woman that most Catholic girls look up to, and respect.

VATICAN CITY – Mother Teresa, the diminutive Albanian nun whose work to feed the hungry and comfort the dying in India became the foundation of a new religious order and earned her a Nobel Peace Prize, was named a saint on Sunday by Pope Francis.

Tens of thousands of Roman Catholic faithful gathered for the canonization ceremony under a cloudless sky and amid tight security. Francis declared Mother Teresa -- now to be called Saint Teresa of Kolkata -- someone who “taught us to contemplate and adore Jesus every day, and to recognize Him and serve Him as well as to recognize and serve our brothers in need.”

I agree with Silver, what an extremely remarkable woman she was.
