declared Mother Teresa a saint on Sunday, praising the tiny nun for
having taken in society's most unwanted and for having shamed world
leaders for the "crimes of poverty they themselves created."
Francis held up Mother Teresa as the model for aCatholic Churchthat goes to the peripheries to find poor, wounded souls during a canonization Mass that drew an estimated 120,000 people — rich and poor, powerful and homeless — to a sun-filled St. Peter's Square.
"Let us carry her smile in our hearts and give it to those whom we meet along our journey, especially those who suffer," Francis said in his homily.
