Letter: Mother Teresa’s works qualify her for sainthood

Mother Teresa’s works qualify her for sainthood

I searched online to find the works and achievements of Pope John Paul II and John XXIII as to what would make them worthy of becoming saints in such a short period of time. I also decided to look up Mother Teresa to see her works and achievements.

A Noble Peace Prize laureate, Mother Teresa helped the poor and destitute people living in the slums of Calcutta, India. The Catholic nun established a center for AIDS patients and founded Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta. Her selfless service is recognized worldwide today. She received more than 100 awards, including Padma Shri, Jawaharlal Nehru Award for International Understanding, Ramon Magsaysay Award for Peace, Pope John XXIII Peace Prize, Pacem in Terris Award and Balzan Prize for Humanity.

I suggest that readers look up the two popes and see if they come close to Mother Teresa’s achievements.
