Even though it is questionable that Mother Theresa performed miracles in the year of her canonization nobody can question her dedication to her people and improving lives in india. Mother house shows the simple austerity of her life and the people around her who supported her and help maintain her legacy in India. Place of pilgrimage..

Go on a Friday for rosary and Mass...it is close quarters and very warm, but you will have a transcendent spiritual experience. God bless Mother and her sisters!

Mass was beautiful and Mothers tomb was a beautiful place to reflect away from the noise and hustle and bustle of what make Calcutta, Calcutta Please volunteer if you can it... More
