Mother’s Daughter Kisses Holy Father

A nun of the Missionary of Charity, the Religious family founded by Mother Teresa puts a scarf and embraces Pope Francis in St Peter's square at the Vatican on September 3, 2016 upon his arrival for a catechism. The canonisation of Mother Teresa will then be held tomorrow in St Peter's Square in a ceremony set to draw tens of thousands of faithful to recognise the sainthood of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize winner, who died aged 87 in India in 1997.
