    In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Blessed Mother Teresa of Kolkata was canonized as a saint for the entire Catholic Church on 4 September 2016, at Vatican by Pope Francis which was deeply religious and yet beyond religion.

Sharma, Antony De Sa and many more leading personalities of the city besides Archbishop Leo Cornelio were participated. They all, in one voice added that it is a pride moment for all the citizens of our country particularly the people of Bhopal for she visited Bhopal city three times officially to establish peace and home for the dead.

    The Children in Shishu Bhavan performed dances to express their gratitude to Mother. There were large number of people witnessed this great memorable event. Later the Superior of the House thanked all the members and the P.R. Office of Bhopal for the extending their hands to make this event a praiseworthy.
