August 26, 2010
NEW DELHI -- On the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mother Teresa, U.S. Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer said, "I join with Indians, Americans and many millions around the world who today honor the memory of one of the most extraordinary women of the 20th century.
"My family and I have had the privilege of visiting the Mother House of the Sisters of Charity in Kolkata and many of the orphanages founded by Mother Teresa across India. On each of these occasions, I have been moved by the supreme humanity of this woman who dedicated her life to bringing love and dignity to each human being. Mother Teresa's work in India is an inspiration for us all."
