The Vatican has officially proclaimed Mother Teresa ‘Calcutta's Protector’ after all the sacrifices that the great saint made for the poor and the sick people in this city in India. The proclamation was made through a message that took place in Calcutta’s Episcopate, under the chairmanship of the Vatican ambassador in India, Giambatista Dikvarto. The mass was attended by about 500 people, while Calcutta's believers were very pleased with this decision.
Mother Teresa was born in Skopje on August 26, 1929, in an Albanian family, and in 1929 she traveled to India, setting up the order of “The Missionaries of Love for Your Keen”. She devoted her entire life to the poor and the sick in the poorest neighborhoods in Calcutta, a commitment for which she was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
At the beginning of September 2016, she was declared saint in a Mass led by the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis.
