Sister Nirmala Joshi
Superior General
Missionaries of Charity

Calcutta 700016

Dear Sister Nirmala:

Please convey to the members of your community the prayers and condolences of the Catholic Bishops of Canada on the death of your founder, Mother Teresa.

Through her selfless devotion to the poor and homeless, her constant call for charity and compassion, and her robust example of Christian service, Mother Teresa became a living symbol of the love and compassion of Jesus Christ not only for the faithful but for the whole world.

While remembering her in prayer, the pastors and faithful of the Church in Canada are also convinced that Mother Teresa is already interceding for all - her community, the universal Church, the city of Calcutta and, especially, the impoverished, the homeless and the dying everywhere.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

+ Francis J. Spence
Archbishop of Kingston
Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops

The colours of the web site represent the official heraldic insignia of Bishops. The green corresponds to the galero (ecclesiastical hat) and six tassels on each side that make up the crest and supporters of the coat of arms of each Bishop while the gold represents the processional cross.
