Mother Teresa's 11th death anniversary

Special prayers were held at the Missionaries of Charity in the city to mark Mother Teresa’s eleventh death anniversary. Prayers and floral tributes were offered at the grave of the Mother inside Mother House. Hundreds of people from all walks of life and of all faiths joined the nuns of the Charity for a special morning mass. The Superior General of the Missionaries of Charity, Sister Nirmala, said nuns and Teresa’s followers are through prayer thanking God for selfless service of the ‘Saint of Gutters’ and for peace in the world’s troubled spots. “We are observing today through prayer, through sacrifice, thanking God for the gift of mother’s life of holiness, and asking her to bless us and help us also to become holy and very specially from her for peace, peace in Orissa and peace in all the troubled areas of the world,” said Sister Nirmala.
