The Canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta is an important event not to be missed. The opportunity to visit the Vatican for this momentous occasion, together with passing through the Holy Doors during this Jubilee Year of Mercy cannot be overlooked. In this blog we reflect on the life of Mother Teresa.
Mother Teresa was Albanian, a missionary and foremost a religious sister. She is the founder of the Missionaries of Charity; she began her missionary work in 1948. Her order established a hospice; centers for the blind, aged, and disabled; and a leper colony. In 1979 she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work. She died in September 1997 and was beatified in October 2003. Her life was dedicated to the poor and destitute, living her life to help those less fortunate. In December 2015, Pope Francis recognized a second miracle attributed to her and paved the way for her canonization. For her unwavering commitment to aiding those most in need, Mother Teresa stands out as one of the greatest humanitarians of the 20th century.
