Hundreds of Missionaries of Charity gathered at their headquarters on Monday to commemorate the birthday of the order's founder, Mother Teresa.
Archbishop Thomas D'Souza of Calcutta, whose birthday falls on the same day, celebrated Mass on Aug. 26 to recognize what would be the 109th birthday of Saint Mother Teresa.
"It was a splendid celebration. The 109th anniversary of the birth of our beloved Saint Mother Teresa was a moment of thanksgiving through prayer and joy," said Father Dominic Gomes, vicar general of the archdiocese.
"The chapel was packed with people of all social origins," he told Asia News.
