Vatican City: September 4, 2016. (Vatican Radio) At the conclusion of the Mass in which he canonized Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Pope Francis led the faithful in the customary Sunday recitation of the Angelus.

In remarks ahead of the Marian prayer, the Holy Father greeted and thanked all those who took part in the day’s celebrations, especially those most closely attached to St Teresa. He also thanked the various dignitaries in attendance, as well as the pilgrims who had come from all over the world. Pope Francis spoke in a special way to the many volunteers present, who are in Rome to celebrate the Jubilee for Volunteers and Workers of Mercy. In this context the Pope remembered especially those who offer their service in “difficult and risky” situations. He recalled Sister Isabel, a Spanish missionary sister who was killed last week in Haiti, as well as other religious sisters who have suffered violence in recent days.
