Local pastor talks Saint Teresa of Kolkata

Mother Teresa Mother Teresa honored as saint and model of mercy

Mother Teresa's canonization in Vatican City by Pope Francis came one day before the 19th anniversary of her death.

A tapestry depicting Mother Teresa hangs from the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica as Pope Francis, standing at bottom, celebrates a a Canonization Mass at the Vatican, Sunday, Sept. 4, 2016.

While Francis was clearly keen to hold Mother Teresa up as a model for her joyful dedication to the poor, he was also recognising holiness in a nun who lived most of her adult life in spiritual agony sensing that God had abandoned her.

"We may have some difficulty in calling her "Saint" Teresa", Pope Francis added.

He then repeated with emphasis, the "the crimes of poverty they themselves created". About 1,500 homeless people from across Italy were served a pizza lunch by some 250 nuns and priests of the Sisters of Charity order, media reports said.

Recognizable worldwide by her meek figure and blue-striped white sari, St, Teresa served in the slums of Kolkata for almost a half-century and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Mother Teresa devoted her life to helping the poor in India and around the world.

"She's Mother Teresa", Joanna Jaworowski said.

Mother Teresa is a saint. He said that during the journey "her life's course changed forever".

"All of India is proud", said Marina Borneo Sam, who traveled from the slum area of Kolkata with her mother for the ceremony.

Teresa was born an ethnic Albanian, and the Albanian flag was much in evidence, as was the distinctive white habit, trimmed with blue stripes, worn by the nuns of her order, the Missionaries of Charity.

The late Christopher Hitchens, who is known for his writings against the church, claimed Mother Teresa took dirty money that mysteriously disappeared. "So I went down and picked up Mother Teresa, and she looked at me and said Father, can I have your blessing?"

The Nobel Peace Prize winner's path to canonisation was sealed after the Vatican previous year recognised the second of two required miracles, following her death.

When Dr. Chuck isn't working Pediatric Rehab at Riley Hospital for Children, he's working with Timmy Global Outreach-a mission he founded 20 years ago because of that meeting with Mother Teresa. Soon thereafter, John Paul placed her on the fast-track for sainthood.
