Kejriwal, Mamata to attend Mother Teresa's canonization in Rome on Sept 4

Kolkata: Delhi Chief Minster Arvind Kejriwal and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee will attend the canonization ceremony of Mother Teresa where she will be declared a saint.

AAP leader Ashutosh took to Twitter to inform that Delhi CM has accepted the invitation of Missionaries of Charity to attend Mother Teresa's sainthood ceremony in Rome on September 4.

"I have accepted Sister Prema's invitation to be present at the canonization of blessed Mother Teresa in Rome on September 4," Banerjee had too announced on Twitter.

In March, Pope Francis had announced that Teresa, who founded the Missionaries of Charity, will be elevated to sainthood after the Church recognized two miracles she was said to have carried out after her death in 1997.

The city-based Missionaries of Charity is now led by its Superior General German-born Sister Mary Prema.

Banerjee will be accompanied by Sister Prema and Archbishop D'Souza in Rome.

Teresa, who will now be a Saint of the Roman Catholic Church, was beatified by then Pope John Paul II in a fast-tracked process in 2003.

The Nobel Laureate had spent 45 years serving the poor and sick on the streets of Kolkata.
