.- As the 100th anniversary of Bl. Mother Teresa’s birth approaches, the Catholic Radio and Television Network (CRTN) has produced a documentary about the construction of a new cathedral being built in Kosovo to be named for the famous Missionary of Charity.

The Cathedral of Mother Teresa is being built in Prishtina, Kosovo with the support of the pastoral charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).

The documentary about the project, titled “On New Foundations,” will include interviews with the local bishop, politicians and Muslims. It explores the plans for the new cathedral and the place of Catholics in the culture of Kosovo, as well as Mother Teresa’s own roots in the region. CRTN is producing the documentary in cooperation with its Bosnian partner, MC Media.

An excerpt of the documentary, posted on YouTube, shows the father of a Catholic family in Kosovo reminding his family to contribute money to the cathedral fund.

As a special service to television producers and others involved in Catholic media, CRTN has also created a directory for resources about Mother Teresa.

Those who have produced media resources about the saintly woman may upload information on their production to a special section of the CRTN website.

Registration on the CRTN website is required.

At present, resources listed in the CRTN directory include Mother Teresa’s speech at World Youth Day in 1984, a miniseries about her life and ministry, a documentary about her death and state funeral, and Petrie Productions’ Emmy award-winning film “Mother Teresa.”

Mother Teresa was born to Albanian parents in Skopje, Macedonia on August 26, 1910. She worked in the slums of Calcutta in India until her death in 1997. She received the Nobel Peace Prize for her work with the sick and the poor and was beatified by the Vatican in 2003.

In a letter to media producers, CRTN noted that media attention to the anniversary of her birth is growing.

According to its website, CRTN has had the backing of Aid to the Church in Need. The network aims to present to Christians and non-Christians the different expressions of Christianity through documentaries, dramas and catechetical programming.

Its website is http://www.crtn.org
