Mother Teresa: The National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP), has highly appreciated the canonisation of Mother Teresa as a Saint by His Holiness Pope Francis at the Vatican on Sunday, September 4, 2016. 

Bishop Dr Joseph Arshad, Chairperson of NCJP in a statement said that Saint Teresa of Calcutta is a role model for all of us. The path that she showed us and the very morals and beliefs she lived by is a testament for all humanity. For her, human beings should live in love and peace and share their love among others.

Dr Joseph Arshad stated that we should understand that love is the most important and the teachings of Christ, “love thy Neighbour’ should be our sole motto. He emphasised that today mankind is facing terrible problems of selfishness and shallowness. As Saint Teresa believed that serving others before your own self will stop the present evils; therefore, we also must follow her example. She spent hours in prayer as she believed that work could not be done without God’s love and grace.
