100th anniversary of Mother Teresa’s birth

September 1, 2010

One hundred years ago last week, Mother Teresa was born.  As we all know, she went on to become a philanthropic model, founding the Missionaries of Charity.  The Daily Tell reports on celebrations of Mother Teresa’s centennial in India:

“Her life and work continue to be an inspiration for the young and the old, the rich and the poor, from all walks of life, religions and nations,” Sister Mary Prema, the nun who now heads the Missionaries of Charity…

And Lakshmi Gandhi cites the AP, which reports:

India’s government plans to release a coin in Mother Teresa’s honor. Indian Railways is launching the Mother Express, a blue and white train, like the colors of the saris worn by the Missionaries of Charity, that will travel around the country carrying an exhibition on Mother Teresa.
