Saint Teresa Of Calcutta

Today it was announced that Pope Francis recognized the second miracle needed for the canonization of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.  Please read the details of the miracle at the Church Militant site.  While she is rightly celebrated for her work with the poor and those dying in destitution, she was a staunch opponent of baby-murder, stating famously that "the greatest destroyer of peace is abortion."  She made that statement at the 1994 National Prayer Breakfast, with pro-abortion President Clinton in attendance.  Pay special attention at the 13:30  mark.  Clearly she was not afraid to proclaim the truth.  Her resolute adherence to the teachings of Jesus Christ in matters of faith and morals were as much a part of her canonization as well as her works of charity.  In fact, her fidelity may be the greater factor as it was the foundation for her works of charity.

Let us ask her intercession for the conversion of the world to Jesus Christ through His Church.
