Mother Teresa’s Canonisation: In Rome today one of the world’s most popular saints will be canonised. In the minds of many, she’s always been a saint; the Church makes it official today in Rome. Mother Teresa became synonymous with sainthood as she attended the sick and dying in the poorest parts of the world. The date of her canonisation was chosen because it’s the eve of the 19th Anniversary of her death. Saint Teresa, or more famously, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, was born on the 26th August 1910. She was baptised on the 27th August 1910 afterwards celebrated the 27th as her birthday. Even non-believers know who Mother Teresa was.

Mother Teresa’s philosophy: “People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centred. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
