GALLERY: St. Teresa of Calcutta celebrated at canonization events

Mother Teresa is at last St. Teresa of Calcutta. On Aug. 26, the Missionaries of Charity held a special novena in honor of their founder’s impending canonization, and this past weekend, they invited Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila and Cardinal J. Francis Stafford to celebrate two special Masses for St. Teresa. Denver Catholic was there to capture these special occasions.
