Sainthood of Mother Teresa is a memorable and proud moment: PM Modi

New Delhi: On the day when India's most-cherished and celebrated 'mother' Mother Teresa was officially canonised at the Vatican City by Pope Francis, Prime Minister Narendra Modi shared his thoughts and said, "Sainthood of Mother Teresa is a memorable and proud moment."
 
After Mother Teresa's canonisation, Bishop Robert Miranda said that she will now be called as Saint Teresa.
 
"She’ll be called hereafter Saint Teresa, not Mother Teresa. We Indians ought to be very happy," Bishop Robert Miranda.
 
Earlier in the day, Mother Teresa's canonisation ceremony took place in St. Peter's Square in Vatican City where a number of bishops from the birthplace of Mother Teresa, Albania, had gathered to witness the canonisation, the elevation of a holy person to the likeness of God.

Mother Terrisa sainthood

There are equal great souls in Tamil Nadu, going "unnoticed". One such person, 'Papa" Vidaya Sagar, running "Udaum Karangal"-- meaning "Helping Hand", taking care of around 2o00 destitute & orphaned children and aged people near Chennai. There is NO provision in Hinduism to make him a saint, for his service, which he has been doing since last 30 to 40 yrs !!
