A statement from Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame, on the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta on Sunday (Sept. 4).

“More than honoring the life and witness of a holy woman, sainthood makes Mother Teresa a gift of our Church. The courage, generosity, directness and simplicity of her embrace of the poorest and most vulnerable human beings gives an example which we, through the grace of her intercession, can strive to imitate.”
