Chicago Churches to Honor Mother Teresa

“Mother Teresa’s relics, including strands of hair, drops of blood and a rosary, are expected to visit Chicago this weekend in honor of the 100th anniversary of the nun’s birth.

The Missionaries of Charity, an order of nuns founded by Mother Teresa in 1950, hastily organized a tour of the items across the Midwest after the relics finished a similar trip along the East Coast.

The showcased objects, also including a tattered pair of sandals and a crucifix, “will bring Mother’s presence very much to life,” said one of the sisters. “She was a special gift from God for our time.”” – “Mother Teresa’s Relics Headed for Chicago This Weekend”, Chicago Catholic News

This post on Chicago Catholic News was awesome to see. I’m happy some people are interested in celebrating this amazing woman’s life and what she did. The Empire State Building, of course, refused to use its lights to honor her after honoring Communist China not too long ago, but that’s another story. Mother Teresa was a great woman and it will be quite a treat for the people of Chicago to be able to see some of personal belongings and life items. The relics will be on display at Saint Procopius, Saint John Cantius, and a convent that was opened by Mother Teresa herself in the city. If you live in the Chicago area, I would certainly suggest going to see these great pieces of history.
