How has Mother Teresa touched your life?

Pope Francis will officially declare Blessed Teresa of Calcutta as a saint on Sept. 4.

In celebration of Mother Teresa’s canonization and her life of ministering to the sick and the dying in some of the world’s poorest neighborhoods, The Criterion is inviting our readers to share their stories of meeting her and/or being inspired by her to serve people in need.

Please send your responses and stories to assistant editor John Shaughnessy by e-mail at or by mail in care of The Criterion. 1400 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, IN 46202.

Please include your parish and a daytime number where you can be reached. †
