Pope Francis celebrated volunteers of mercy in St. Peter’s Square on Saturday. He concluded his catechesis by noting the example of Mother Teresa, who will be canonized tomorrow:

“Tomorrow we will have the joy of seeing Mother Teresa proclaimed a saint.  This witness to mercy in our time will join the vast array of men and women who, by their holiness of life, have made the love of Christ visible.  Let us also imitate their example, as we ask to be humble instruments in God’s hands in order to alleviate the world’s sufferings, and to share the joy and hope of the resurrection.”
