Mother Teresa on her 11th Death Anniversary

Today the Catholic Church commemorates the 11th death anniversary of the living saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta, India in 1950. For over forty five years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying, while guiding the Missionaries of Charity's expansion, first throughout India and then in other countries. Mother Teresa inspired a variety of commemorations. Following her death she was beatifiedby Pope John Paul II and given the title Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
