"A beautiful day of celebration for the universal church, and for all of us, especially here in the archdiocese," Archbishop José H. Gomez, archbishop of Los Angeles, aid in his homily. "In Mother Teresa, we have a model of holiness ... someone who is a saint of her time and place. The work of Sister Teresa's Missionaries of Charity continues here among the poorest of the poor.
