Mother Teresa saw in humanity a family

The canonisation of Blessed Teresa of Kolkata is a joyful feast for the Church and all humankind. Since her death, the spiritual stature of this extraordinary woman has been becoming ever clearer to the benefit of so many souls.

In 2003, St. John Paul II invited all of us to reflect on her message of service and charity. How much good comes from getting to know her biography, her writings and thoughts. The untiring generosity of Mother Teresa of Kolkata is a strong spur to learn to live for others.
