Declared a Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II (1997)
This is a great event of our lifetime and a wonderful historical portrayal because it happened so recently. It is a contemporary stained glass portryal that will reflect the religious mood of our generation to future members of the St. Theresa Church community.
It is a somewhat fanciful portrayal with both Theresas looking down from heaven as the Pope signs his declaration, but is symbolic of of the continuance of the Church and the faith. Mother Theresa exemplified the simplicity of the Saint’s life in her humble ministration to the poor and downtrodden of the world. Her love of God is a reflection of the love described in the Saint’s autobiography.
