Mother Teresa has officially been declared a Saint by Pope Francis, and is now known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. The majority of the article is written by a woman who was close to her, as she describes her personal, saintly experiences with the newly recognized Saint Teresa of Calcutta.
- I was in Calcutta, as it was called then (now mainly referred to as Kolkata), to present at a major conference organized by the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine in association with the World Health Organization.
- When I was told I was being honored for my work with a gold medal, I could hardly believe it when I heard the names of other recipients that year who were similarly being honored for their work.
- First Mother Teresa spoke with the couple, and then they called me over and introduced me to her. I bowed, and she indicated that was not necessary. She was very down to earth.
“The words she spoke, which struck me the most, expressed the same philosophical attitudes that I believe and attempt to live by in my daily life.”
