The Missionary of Charity holds a mass in the Indian city of Kolkata to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Mother Teresa.

Mother Teresa founded the charity in 1950 and died in 1997.

Sister Prema of the charity spoke of the person known simply as Mother:

“Many of us present here have personally met Mother. We have experienced the look of her eyes, the warmth of her smile and her loving touch.

The nun of ethnic Albanian origin spent 47 years with the poor, sick and orphaned and gained global recognition for her work during her lifetime.

The mass marks the formal beginning of a year of celebrations
