Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Mother Teresa of Calcutta was canonised in Rome to-day. She was also celebrated in Cleveland at the Albanian Cultural Garden. Dona Brady, an Albanian, and long time west side councilman was the lead speaker and organiser. Proud Albanians, respectful Catholics, and friends of charity came. Overhead flew military jets from the air show, and other street traffic added to the occasional din. Speakers of the Cultural Garden, and members of religious orders added their reflections of thought. Bishop Gries remembered St. Teresa's concern for the unborn. Local television sent cameramen. Part of the ceremony was an echo of the unveiling of the bronze statue of Mother Teresa.

A white dove, symbolising peace, was released from a basket (a foto i could not capture). Dona Brady rang a bell for St. Teresa. People then laid flowers on the statue.
