Today the world had his eyes on the canonization ceremony headed by Pope Francis in the Vatican City. It is so proud moment for all of us that Mother Teresa is declared as the “Mother of Saint”. Mother Teresa was from Calcutta and was known as the “saint of the gutters” in all of her life as she uses to save the poor people from death.
She is now declared as a saint of the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Francis, fast-tracked to canonization just 19 years after her death. She worked for the worlds neediest in the slums of the Indian city now called Kolkata and become one of the most recognizable faces of the 20th century. We are so blessed to have her in our life.
It is really a proud moment for the country as we are, honored by the tradition we have. Standing under a canvas hung from St. Peter’s Basilica showing the late nun in her blue-hemmed white robes, Francis said she was a “dispenser of divine mercy” and held world powers to account “for the crimes of poverty they created”.
The ceremony of Mother Teresa went with the speech of Pope Francis in this way…
Around 120,000 people were present in that ceremony. Pope Francis said that it is difficult to call Mother Teresa as “Saint” as she was very close to the heart of the people. She was usually called “mother”. Everything she did, gave the example to everyone. She was more than an inspiration. She showed we can’t all do everything, but little gestures made with so much love are what are important.
As pilgrims from across the world gathered at the Vatican along with delegations from more than a dozen governments, the canonization was also celebrated in Skopje; the capital of modern Macedonia where Mother Teresa was born of Albanian parents in 1910 and became a nun aged 16.Mother Teresa will always be remembered for the deeds she did for the entire world.
