Canonisation of Mother Teresa

His Holiness Pope Francis will declare Mother Teresa of Kolkata a saint on September 4, 2016 at St. Peter's Square, Vatican City, in Rome. He will declare her a saint of the universal Church, on the day he has set aside for the celebration of the Jubilee for volunteers and workers of Mercy, since Mother is a symbol of God's mercy for the poor and the marginalized of this world.

The canonization of Mother Teresa gives us an opportunity to reflect deeply on her life and mission for the poorest of the poor. Mother has long been a saint. For us in Kolkata, she is the song of celebration, hymn of compassion. The city of Kolkata shall shine in her holiness. I wish and pray that her Sainthood washes away our sinfulness. 

Mother believed that God is specially revealed in the mystery of the human person who is 'created in the image and likeness of God' - she probed the meaning of human life and arrived at the radical goodness that resides in every individual. Read more
