St Teresa – level 1

St Teresa – level 1

08-09-2016 07:00

Mother Teresa is a nun. She helps poor people in India. She gets the Nobel Peace Prize for her work. Many people know her.

She dies in 1997. Pope John Paul II wants to make her a saint. She becomes a saint this month. Pope Francis makes her a saint. This happens at St Peter’s Square at the Vatican. Many people watch this.

St Teresa has critics. They say that she does not fight the causes of poverty. They also say that she takes money from dictators.

Difficult words: nun (a woman who lives her life only for God), saint (when the Pope says that somebody is a saint, he says that the person is very good), cause of poverty (the reasons why people are poor – why they have no money).
