E-mail Print PDF

altBALLARI, SEP 04: Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (Kolkata) was elevated to sainthood by Pope Francis today in the Vatican.

Hundreds of thousands of dignitaries and pilgrims witnessed the event of global importance.

The canonisation of Mother Teresa, a Nobel prize winner who was known as the “Saint of the Gutters” for her work with impoverished and dying people living in the slums, was been highly anticipated by admirers all over the world, and is the highlight of the church’s jubilee year of mercy.

Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu on 26 August 1910, in Skopje, Macedonia, Teresa joined the Loreto order of nuns in 1928.

In 1946, while travelling by train from Kolkata to Darjeeling, she was inspired to found the Missionaries of Charity order.

The order was established in 1950 and has since opened houses in more than 130 counties with over 6,000 members worldwide providing comfort and care for the needy, dying and sick.

She died in 1997 and was beatified in 2003 and was declared Blessed in 2013.

The Bellary Diocese is blessed with a convent of Missionaries of Charity of Mother Teresa who are caring for the poorest, physically challenged and aged.

The Diocesan thanksgiving celebration will be held on Sep. 10 at the Bellary Arogya Mathe Shrine.

Many dignitaries, priests, religious and lay faithful are expected to participate in large numbers in the event enthusiastically.
