its good to know that today is a special day for catholics. Sprcially those in Rome at this very moment for Mother Teresa of Calcuta will now be declared as new saint. I know that we have so many indian brothers and sisters here who are catholic or anyone here who can share more about Mother Teresas life. I fist encounter her in my high school days,a priest told her story and I saw how she work thru news. thou small in height this person have a great heart specially for the poor and her advocacy in helping lepers, feeding programs, helping to aliviate malnutrition is a work blest by God. Lets all ask her mediation to our God to pray for us specially this days of lent... mother teresa... pray for us

I am not Catholic but I have HUGE admiration for her. She truly was an inspiration to many!!! I don't believe in sainthood but if I did I would say she deserves the sainthood.

And where does Jesus instruct anyone to make people saints? Indeed he even forbids lesser titles But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. Matthew 23:8-11 all the best urban

I am not Catholic, and I do not understand fully how people can be made "saints." I think it's great that the Vatican is deciding to honor her for all that she did in life, but I do not know how a group of earthly beings can decide who is considered to be adequately deemed in sainthood.

I am not Catholic,I am a Protestant Christian, but I have great admiration for Mother Teresa. She was authentic, and had great integrety. More people should live like her, and care for our poor and needy. This is a good discussion for Lent.

That is really cool. I'm not Catholic, but I know that it is a big deal when someone is canonized. I know that it is a lengthy process. It is fortunate that we live in a time that we could see a new saint be accepted. I think that this goes down as one of the fastest canonizations in Catholic history, up there with the canonization of Saint Francis of Assisi. Thanks for posting this and letting us all know about it!
