Commemorations Mark Tenth Anniversary of Mother Teresa's Death


Admirers of Mother Teresa marked the 10th anniversary of her death on Wednesday with a Roman Catholic Mass, a candlelight procession and interfaith prayers in the eastern Indian city of Kolkata.

Archbishop Lucas Sirkar celebrated the Mass at the headquarters of Missionaries of Charity, the order Mother Teresa founded.

Hundreds of people carrying candles and rosary beads joined processions to visit clinics and schools that Mother Teresa opened in Kolkata's slums.

She was known as the "Saint of Gutters" for her work among the poor.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner died on September fifth, 1997 at age 87.

Paramashish Ghosh Roy has more on the story.
