PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS - SILVER COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL OF CANONIZATION OF MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA

PONTIFICATE OF POPE FRANCIS - SILVER COMMEMORATIVE MEDAL OF CANONIZATION OF MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA  

During the Holy Year of Mercy we will celebrate the canonization of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, the Saint of the Poor whom Pope John Paul II wanted to beatify immediately in recognition of her virtues. Frail but equally determined in her vocation, Mother Teresa loved God and the Church with great strength, simplicity and extraordinary humility, glorifying with her life the dignity of a most humble service. The Vatican Philatelic Numismatic Office celebrates the event with the issue of a silver medal, work of the artist Amalia Mistichelli. The medal will be available both single and packed in diptych with the official bronze medal of the Holy Year of Mercy.
