RELICS OF Mother Teresa were exposed for the veneration of the faithful, yesterday at Saints Teresa and Bridget Church in Saint Louis.
Born in Albania as Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, Mother Teresa gained sanctity and worldwide fame as the foundress of the Missionaries of Charity, taking care of the “poorest of the poor” in the most poverty-stricken cities in the world.
Now she is venerated as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.
Reliquaries containing Teresa's blood and hair were placed on the altar.
I must apologize for the poor quality of these photos. I did not want to disturb the other faithful, and so I just took quick snapshots.

“It is not the magnitude of our actions but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.” — Mother Teresa
