279 – Vito Mazza: Tribute to Mother Teresa’s Canonization into Sainthood

mother-teresaEven in her lifetime, Mother Teresa was an icon of God’s tender mercy, radiating the light of God’s love to so many through the works of mercy, both material and spiritual.

Mother Teresa’s mission was to “light the light of those in darkness on earth.”

With her canonization, the Church presents her as a model and intercessor of those who, like her, “long to light the fire of love and peace throughout the world.”

She can be taken as a patron saint especially for those who are most in need of God’s mercy.

Mother Teresa’s calling card spoke volumes about her service, sacrifice, and vision of leadership:

The fruit of SILENCE is Prayer

The fruit of PRAYER is Faith

The fruit of FAITH is Love

The fruit of LOVE is Service

The fruit of SERVICE is Peace
