The official page of Mother Teresa’s cause of beatification (www.motherteresacause.info) offers information about the ceremony, in English, Spanish and Italian.

Given the large number of people expected for the event, the organizing committee advises that reservations be made as soon as possible through ordinary mail, fax or e-mail, following the instructions on the official page.

The page includes application forms for tickets, which are free.

Likewise, a brief biography of Mother Teresa may be consulted as well as some documents relating to her spiritual life, in particular the letters she wrote when she decided to live her mission among the poor of India, and her dramatic letters on “God’s silence.”

In an interview available on the Web, Missionary of Charity Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, postulator of the cause of beatification, says that this experience of “God’s silence” makes Mother Teresa a saint who is very close to the anxieties and doubts that weigh on the world of today.
